Verdict

Phoenix Rock has yet to win a race of any description but his latest third at Warwick was his best effort to date over fences and he’s less exposed than some of these. Baron Du Plessis has placed in five of his 10 chase starts but is hard to predict and is returning from a break. EATON MILLER failed to complete twice at Huntingdon last month but did win at that track in April and is back on the same mark so gets the nod.
