Verdict

Patavium beat the erratic Funky Munky in this 12 months ago and re-opposes on better terms, However, he's been off the track since April while the runner-up is an infrequent winner. The Fox's Decree alternates between hurdles and fences but has run 29 times over the smaller obstacles and is still awaiting a first win while Ballymoat and King Mak still look too high in the weights. The booking of Jason Maguire for DANCEINTOTHELIGHT catches the eye as Micky Hammond's charge is throw in here on his best form and should be cherry-ripe now after a couple of recent runs - he gets the nod.
