Verdict

Conceding 10lbs won't be easy but DOLATULO was sufficiently impressive at Sandown to think that he can do so in this company. That was his first outing for Paul Nicholls following wins on the Flat and over hurdles in France and he looks capable of holding his own in better company. He didn't beat a great deal on that occasion but he doesn't appear to have a great deal to beat here with the possible exception of Smad Place who makes his debut for Alan King having finished second to a subsequent dual winner at Chateaubriant. On Khee and Missionaire were 70 rated performers on the level and merit a market check.
