Verdict

Goring One's recent course and distance victory came a little out of the blue and he's on a career-high mark. Time For Spring and Lively Baron are others who have been successful at the track this term but the latter is an out-and-out stayer and the former doesn't always find a lot off the bridle. RIGADIN DE BEAUCHENE won the Grade 3 Classic Chase at Warwick in January and ran well in the Grand National Trial at Haydock subsequently off his new mark. The drop back to 3m is a slight concern but this is a stiff track and he's fancied to get back to winning ways. Alvarado has a chance on his best form and There's No Panic was a fair third here last month, though is possibly a couple of pounds too high in the weights.
