Verdict

French Canadian has been in excellent form between the flags this term and only found favourite Current Exchange too strong on his debut under Rules at Market Rasen earlier this month. The seven-year-old has to go on the short-list but meets another in-form rival in ROBIN WILL, who is just preferred. The eight-year-old has the experienced Josh Guerriero in the saddle and bounded clear at Buckfastleigh nine days ago in the style of an improver. Tirob has some ability and could snatch a place as Schindler's Prince was pulled up on his reappearance and has more on his plate here. The Magherally Man has won three times in point-to-points but hasn't raced since last March.
