Verdict

Majala has every chance on form of his third behind Our Mick in a Grade 2 novice chase at Haydock back in January. But KANDARI may have the edge in fitness as he finished a respectable second on his chasing bow at Worcester in September - he gets the vote to go one better. Renard D 'Irlande won twice over hurdles in 2011 but hasn't raced since April of that year and it was March last year when Ludlow winner Arthur's Pass was last seen at the track. Sew On Target made a pleasing chasing bow at Chepstow and makes more appeal than Grey Missile of the others.
