Verdict

Mibleu continues to defy his years and the winner has franked the form of his latest course and distance second. But we just prefer WESTER ROSS, who was runner-up in a much stronger heat at Ffos Las on his latest start and has the beating of Colin Tizzard's veteran on a line through Benny's Quest. Engai made a winning start over fences at Southwell and can only improve but it's difficult to make a case for any of the others on recent form, Tri Nations having finished last at Stratford on Thursday.
