Verdict

GRADUATION NIGHT had Time For Spring, Sound Stage and The Falklander behind when fourth to Hunter's Lodge on his reappearance at Cheltenham. He's been dropped a pound since and there seems no reason why Jamie Snowden's charge shouldn't confirm the form here - he gets the nod. Imperial Circus can only improve on his debut fourth over fences at Wetherby but Old Wigmore, Masked Man, Victoria Rose and Causing Chaos were all pulled up last time, though the latter does have the benefit of a recent run. Bennys Mist got found out off his new mark at Worcester but the longer trip here will help his cause and he shouldn't be abandoned just yet and is preferred to the returning Pensnett Bay.
