In depth

Verdict

Telemoss, Spring Margot and Minnigaff look the three to concentrate on in this hunter chase with the confident vote going to Telemoss. The selection was a fair sixth in a much better race than this behind Whysomayo last time. This softer ground will suit and he need only put in a fluent round of fencing to score. Spring Margot rates the main danger on his latest fourth behind Derrintogher Yank but he continues to be beset by jumping problems and at likely odds he looks worth taking on. Minnigaff was a fair second behind Murphy's Gift last time in a point and if he copes with these regulation fences he could go well at a price. Of the remainder Mr Cooney is game and consistent and is sure to run his race but his overall form leaves him with plenty to find and with this in mind for the winner we return to Telemoss.
