Verdict

It would be no surprise to see Mr Burgees to go well, despite a lengthy absence. Mr Moss won a recent start here over 2m4f but his jumping will come under greater pressure in this. Clubs Are Trumps has never won off a mark this high but was more like his old self when only beaten a head at Market Rasen last month. LETBESO has his first run over fences since January but is back on a winning mark and has been going well over hurdles lately. He gets the nod with Newton Abbot third Kingscourt Native looking best of the rest.
