Verdict

Salto Chisco is only a pound higher than when winning a novices' handicap over course and distance in May but has let supporters down twice since. JETHRO may offer more value if he can get his act together. He, too, has disappointed in his last two but is only five and was placed over hurdles here in March. Crafty Roberto is the only other worthy of consideration but he's now 0-11 over fences and hasn't raced since third at Uttoxeter in April.
