Verdict

From Eden’s participation may depend on how he came out of yesterday’s race here over hurdles. He’d need careful consideration if making his chasing debut but, in his possible absence, we’ll turn to BOY’S ON TOUR who won twice over track and trip last summer and was still travelling when unseating his rider at the first in the home straight last time at Musselburgh. Western Rules wins his fair share but lacks an extra gear over this trip and stablemate Imada has been a beaten favourite the last twice. Luckofthedraw looks out of sorts and Cooking Fat has had a lay-off but Christmas In April could be interesting under Jonjo O’Neill Jr.
