Verdict

Time Book won a lesser contest over a shorter trip here in May but was well beaten on a return visit and FRANKLINO should take all the beating in this if jumping adequately. He finally got his act together over hurdles during the summer and doesn't look badly treated on his chase debut, despite top weight. Ballymoat also tackles fences for the first time but has won a point-to-point while Marju King won twice over hurdles and the recent Stratford third should be a factor here with a clear round.
