Verdict

HONOURABLE GENT (NAP) won two of his last three in 2013 and was having his first start for over a year when falling when in the lead here last month. He looked to be feeling the pinch at the time but, with that under his belt, can start making up for lost time. Urban Kode has gone up 4lb for finishing runner-up to Claude Carter in that race, which looks harsh, while Devenish Island ran a shocker at Towcester on Boxing Day after looking as though a victory was imminent on his previous start. Luctor Emergo has scored over three miles here and that looks his trip.
