Verdict

ROSSLYN CASTLE clearly has a mind of his own but his latest third at Uttoxeter came in a better race than this and he's probably the one to beat if McCoy can keep him covered up in this small field. Omid hasn't been seen since winning over a longer trip here at the start of December off an 8lb lower mark while Funky Munky was still beaten 23 lengths when second at Kelso, though did finish ahead of Knight Valliant. Indepub seems to have lost his way and Dickie Henderhoop may be in need of a confidence-booster.
