          Verdict

          SEEYAAJ is our idea of the most likely winner with Elite Land and Daliarose offered up as alternatives. The course-and-distance winner isn't the prettiest fencer in the world to watch but he is a gritty and resolute character who will continue to battle on to the death. Elite Land won readily at Worcester and looks as if he will make up into a useful prospect. Daliarose had listed form in France over hurdles though was a bitter disappointment on her debut for David Pipe. Mister Benedictine was proving hard to place over hurdles so the market is worth a check over the larger obstacles. Wee Forbees appreciates fast ground though inconsistency has been a feature of his career. Viper is continued in the blinkers he wore when third at Market Rasen earlier in the month. A trappy affair when Seeyaaj is the call in a race where cogent cases exist for many.
