Verdict

Degenerate showed promise in bumpers in 2011 and has won a point-to-point since. LUMPYS GOLD has also won between the flags, however, and won't fail through lack of stamina. Now with Paul Nicholls, he can make a winning start to his career under Rules as Un Ami tries this longer trip for the first time, though has kept good company in the main. Kastani Beach is probably the pick of the remainder as Masters Hill and Wither Yenot will probably prove better over fences in time.
