Verdict

Included and Three Colours Red are highly consistent and always seems to be there or thereabouts but both have only had a single outing over fences and may struggle to contain more experienced chasing types. Bletchley Castle is a confirmed front-runner with a penchant for really attacking his obstacles and should give Bryan Carver a great spin around here. He's tempting and PINK EYED PEDRO is only a narrow preference. He impressed when scoring over timber recently and his point-to-point record of ten wins and six places from 20 starts speaks volumes for his ability and experience. He has also landed a hunter chase under Rules.
