Verdict

San Pedro De Senam, a hurdle and chase winner, is eased in grade returning from a break and should be thereabouts if fully wound-up but CELESTIAL FORCE is clear at the weights and can make a winning start for new connections having been bought out of a seller at Taunton in which Stratford winner Secret Secret was only third.
