Verdict

Loose Chips didn't look the most fluent of jumpers on his chasing bow at Plumpton but will have benefited for the experience. BENVOLIO tries his luck over the larger obstacles having ended last season with a double over timber. A half-brother to a winning chaser, Paul Nicholls' charge gets the nod. Rendl Beach can match any of these over hurdles but got no further than the second fence on his chasing debut at Exeter and Who Owns Me was less than impressive in a similar event at Stratford last month.
