Verdict

This should go to SPECIAL PORTRAIT, who has proved himself a useful performer in this sphere and followed his victory over 3m3f here with a cracking effort over a marathon trip at Cheltenham. Beau Traveller has shown some ability though has never won under Rules but the veteran Harry Flashman has had plenty of success over hurdles and fences and produced another good run at Hexham last month. It will be a surprise if any of the remainder are good enough.
