Verdict

Kauto Relko enjoys a big turnaround in the weights than when third to Mush Mir at Warwick in December but has become expensive to follow whereas Nicky Henderson's novice has won at Fontwell since. Like Relax, successful at Leicester and Plumpton before finishing second at Chepstow, he faces no easy task at the weights, however, while Get It On is consistent but possibly lacks a bit of scope now. MILO MILAN has a bit to find on official figures but a short break may have done him the world of good and he's been quite highly tried, beating subsequent winner Mr Syntax here in November. Richard Lee's charge gets the nod.
