Verdict

Parisienne Gale gets the vote here with College City and Prince Adjal rating the main dangers. The selection won well last time out when beating Jupiter Jo and although she has a penalty for that win she still looks well weighted and under similar conditions here she is hard to oppose. College City rates the main danger on his best form but he continues to be let down by his jumping at vital stages in races and at likely odds he is worth opposing. Price Adjal disappointed over hurdles last time but prior to that had won well over fences and now that he returns to the larger obstacles he should be noted in the market. Of the remainder Your Advantage has the ability to go close but does not always ordain to use it and for the winner we return to Parisienne Gale.
