Verdict

Cygnet duly landed the odds at Southwell 12 days ago but it's difficult to evaluate the merit of that performance and the five-year-old has to give 22lb here to RAJNAGAN. Paul Webber's gelding took a long time to acclimatise after arriving from France but was a promising third on the Flat at Chepstow earlier this month before justifying solid market support over C&D back over hurdles. He's on the upgrade and can follow up today. Dream Catcher, fourth here last time, takes a drop in grade and may be the pick of the remainder as Call To Arms has been well below his best in his last two starts.
