Verdict

Plantagenet is probably a few pounds too high but ran well at Plumpton last time. Juge Et Parti makes his handicap debut having only found one too good in his three starts to date over timber. Flashjack has gone up a further 8lb since completing his hat-trick at Warwick and LATE SHIPMENT is 10lb higher than when successful last year. However, Nikki Evans’ charge is three from three around here and has been keeping better company this season so might be worth an interest with Kieran Edgar taking off 3lb. Definately Vinnie is also a course and distance winner but has finished behind Flashjack the last twice. The Cider Maker hasn’t raced over hurdles since 2015 so Catching On may be the pick of the remainder.
