In depth

Verdict

It was fast ground at Leicester last month when TOMMY SILVER won a beginner’s chase. But all ground come alike to Paul Nicholls’ charge and he can take advantage of today’s favourable terms and go in again. Testify has won over hurdles here and makes his chasing debut but Kimberlite Candy has shown little over fences so far. Town Parks disappointed when joint-favourite at Worcester last time but had fared better over a shorter trip at Carlisle earlier.
