Verdict

Fountains Flypast is jumping fences late in life but was placed at Taunton on his first try over the larger obstacles. Venetian Lad has won six times around here, twice off today's mark. But his advancing years may be taking their toll and he seems to prefer better ground nowadays. Arquebusier makes his chasing debut but could figure if embracing the new challenge and makes more appeal than Money Talks. DE BLACKSMITH has yet to win over fences but has been placed six times, including in his last three. He's not getting much leniency from the handicapper but looks the best option as Atlantic Roller's record is no better and he only ran four days ago.
