Verdict

Softer going would have better suited both of these. Dan Skelton took last year’s renewal and Robin Waters, sixth in the Albert Bartlett in March, has already won between the flags but MINELLA AWARDS looked in need of the outing at Chepstow last month and ran accordingly. He jumped well enough and can put that experience to good use today.
