      Verdict

      Azari and Michael's Mount were both engaged yesterday at Chester so this small field may be reduced further. Fibonacci finished five lengths behind Sharja Silk in the Queen’s Prize at Kempton and may struggle to reverse that form, despite a 5lb pull in the weights. JEDHI goes well on an easy surface and won over this trip at Nottingham in October. He hasn’t run since the following month but still looks to be on a decent mark so we’ll take a chance on his fitness.
