Verdict

INISHRUSH hasn't many miles on the clock for his age and has taken well to fences. He rarely looked in danger of defeat when making all at Uttoxeter on Sunday and may well be good enough to defy his penalty here. The Fox's Decree should appreciate the return to chasing and rates the principal danger with Just The Job and Stormyisland Ahead having something to prove after being pulled up last time. Chit Chat needs to improve on her fifth at Newton Abbot but course specialist Washango isn't badly handicapped, though is proving difficult to win with over fences.
