Verdict

DENALI HIGHWAY beat Full Ov Beans seven lengths over track and trip in December. That was only his second start over fences and Caroline Bailey's charge is taken to confirm his superiority despite a 10lb rise. Sawpit Supreme is much more exposed and still looks too high in the weights judged on his recent placed efforts but Persian Herald ran well enough on his chasing bow at Fakenham and Star Galaxy is not without a chance off his current mark on his return to action.
