Verdict

MODULE's win at Newbury hasn't been franked but he jumped well that day and still looks a nice prospect. It will be a surprise if he's not good enough to defy a penalty in this grade. Doncaster third Achimota should be winning soon, however, and can make a race of it and Matt Sheppard's charge is much preferred to The Society Man, who was only a plater over hurdles. Richo didn't run badly on the Polytrack four days ago but has managed just one victory in 42 career starts while Tough Cookie is impossible to fancy.
