Verdict

ANAY TURGE is only a pound higher than when a half-length second to Monday's Kempton winner Moscow Chancer at that track in April. He was second over hurdles on soft ground at Plumpton last month and can go one better here. Sophonie could be the danger if she can recapture the form she showed in France as she probably needed her reappearance at Exeter, though it would be no surprise to see both Sew On Target and the equally lightly-raced Starsky Des Mottes improve on what they've shown so far over fences. They may have more scope than Captain Paulie and Amuse Me.
