Verdict

Ice Cool Benny has plenty of experience over regulation fences but had to be ridden right out to justify favouritism in a three-runner race at Maisemore Park earlier this month and has a penalty to carry here. He was only fifth in this race last year. Bob Almighty finally got off the mark in a maiden at the same meeting but has more on his plate now while Invisible Man was a beaten favourite at Wheatland after winning a Ladies Open at Brampton Bryan. TEMAIR FEIS won an open maiden by four lengths at Garthorpe last month under Richard Spencer. That was an improved effort and he could be worth an interest in this opener.
