Verdict

CHINA GOES GREEN is rated 101 over fences after scoring at Gowran in April so it's no surprise to see him back over timber off 15lb lower and he can take this. All Guns Blazing ran her best race to date over hurdles at Fairyhouse and should get involved while Colberay can give a good account if managing to stay on his feet, though two falls in his last three runs suggests caution. Bennys Quest has a big weight but this isn't the toughest of races and his rider's claim will help.
