Verdict

Conas Taoi was biting off more than he could chew last time at Cheltenham and should fare better here but FREE OF CHARGE was in hot pursuit of the eventual winner at Worcester three weeks ago when falling four out and can take this with a clear round ahead of Pure Poteen, who had Georgian King behind when scoring at Chepstow and should confirm that running. For 'n' Against is getting closer while Barton Gift has scope for further improvement this season and makes more appeal than veterans Rockiteer and Paddy The Oscar.
