Verdict

Benny The Swinger was winning over fences earlier in the year but has yet to score over timber. He should still be in the mix in this grade but DESTINY BLUE may prove too good. The latter could only manage fourth up against much higher rated rivals than these in a seller over track and trip last time but can come out best today. Tennessee Bird also ran well in similar company here last time and Jawahal Du Mathan made the frame at Worcester on his latest start. The booking of A P McCoy for Money Money Money catches the eye as Jim Best's mare makes her handicap debut over timber.
