Verdict

LANDSCAPE had just hit the front in a valuable handicap at Haydock last month when meeting the last all wrong and paying the price. He may not have won but he'd have gone very close and compensation awaits here. Darley Sun is a former Cesarewitch winner but has been a bit disappointing over hurdles so far. Houndscourt needs to improve again on his latest second at Southwell while Moscow Presents finished tailed off last time and may be found wanting again. No Buts may also find this too tough and it's difficult to fancy the quirky Keenes Day after a lay-off.
