Verdict

Last Shot and Truckers Benefit could figure if fully wound-up but Topthorn and Reste Jeune may be best watched after a break and Kayfton Pete hasn't enjoyed himself over fences so far. Zepnove had Shropshire Lass behind when springing a bit of a surprise at deserves respect but FOREVER MY FRIEND may well do better now he tackles fences and it's interesting that the handicapper is allowing him to start off over the larger obstacles off his hurdling mark - he gets the nod.
