Verdict

A fully tuned-up Always Right will take some beating on these terms as he's rated much higher than today's opponents. But he hasn't raced since May and neither has Killary Bay. Palypso De Creek won this last year but has 13lb more to carry today and preference is for DOCTOR KINGSLEY. The latter won one of these events at Cheltenham the last time he raced over regulation fences and he arrives here on the back of a recent point-to-point victory. Captain Americo and Croan Rock have been placed between the flags recently and may also figure.
