Verdict

PRIDEOFTHECASTLE is penalised for beating Steel City, who runs in the first division, here last month but is on the upgrade and is entitled to the vote. He may prove just too strong for stablemate Knight Of Noir, whose jumping left plenty to be desired at Wincanton. Sky Watch hasn't really improved since landing a Sandown bumper on his debut though he stays well enough and should get involved. Tribulation made a promising start at Chepstow in November but was never in contention when returning there a month later. Cool George won a bumper here on his debut and has done enough over hurdles to suggest a race of this nature is within his capabilities.
