Verdict

Mission Complete has been the subject of market support on his two most recent visits to the racecourse although the money has remained in the bookmaker's satchels as he has failed to finish on either occasion. We will seek to oppose him with ALWAYS BOLD. Martin Keighley's gelding ran a respectable race at Uttoxeter four days ago and he was not knocked about once his chances of winning had gone. Aikideau is still a maiden over fences but he was rated much higher over hurdles than this. Inishrush wasn't far away on his reappearance after almost a year off, while Lord Lescribaa has posted all three of his previous victories at this course. Sandynow is unproven on the surface and Peter Bowen's charge is tried in a visor for the first time.
