Verdict

Mauricetheathlete was prominent for a long way on his reappearance at Chepstow and is preferred to Shaking Hands, who will be back over fences shortly. Architrave tries a new trip but Tarvini stays well and is starting to look well treated while Pyleigh Lass started favourite at Ludlow last month and could go close if she stays. SWIFT CHAP, second over 2m3f here on his return, also has his stamina to prove but he's won over 2m4f and Micheal Nolan takes off 5lb here. He gets the nod with Sangfroid still well below par and Flying Award returning from a lengthy absence.
