Verdict

NIGHT IN MILAN has been highly tried since opening his account over fences here last May. But he's been running well and, despite falling at Doncaster on his latest start, should be good enough to give weight to these. Rudemeister is often placed but lacks an extra gear, though is much preferred to the equally one-paced ex-pointer Toplander. Ifyouthinkso looks the danger to the selection, despite making his debut over the larger obstacles. He may be suited by distance in excess of 3m but has already won between the flags and the horse he beat, Loudmouth, has won over timber this season.
