Verdict

REMIND ME LATER will have learned plenty from his run behind Thomas Brown at Ascot last November. Already successful in point-to-points and hurdles, Gary Moore's seven-year-old has more scope than his two rivals over fences, though a line through the mare Bon Chic leaves him closely matched with Mercers Court who is race-fit. Jarlath, as his form figures suggest, is consistent and was placed in this grade in July so is no forlorn hope.
