Verdict

This is quite a competitive event and Good Lord Luis just gets the nod over Mark Equal and Lord Dundaniel. The selection hasn't raced since September when a very impressive winner at Hereford. He easily accounted for Danish Decorum, and as that winner scored emphatically next time out, the form is rock solid. Mark Equal was a little outclassed at Cheltenham last time but had previously done well against this type of opponents. He should be capable of making the places. Lord Dundaniel came a cropper at Ludlow last time but looks very well treated on the pick of his previous form and he should be involved in the finish. Lord Strickland can also be expected to go well despite top-weight, but on this occasion we will side with his stable companion Good Lord Luis.
