Verdict

SAFFERANO won over a shorter trip here in October and, after a poor run at Fontwell, bounced back to form over 3m at Fakenham. He's only 2lb higher in this and a useful 7lb claimer takes off 7lb so he should take all the beating. Monderon beat a good yardstick over course and distance last month and wasn't disgraced when trying to follow up at Warwick. He may be the danger as Chepstow third He's The Daddy still looks too high in the weights and Rising Teal isn't particularly well treated on her handicap debut and has a preferred engagement at Fontwell. Trozulon will surely need this and Merchant Of Milan is also entered at Huntingdon.
