In depth

Verdict

Chabrimal Minster, Nocatee and Martin Ossie are three against the in this novices chase and the vote is given to Chabrimal Minster. The selection was a fair fourth in a better race behind Calvic. The drop in trip is sure to suit and off the same mark here he will be hard to beat. Nocatee rates the main danger on her best form but she is far from consistent and at likely odds she looks worth taking on. Martin Ossie is another worthy of respect but he has yet to prove he stays this far and for that reason he is overlooked. Of the remainder Definite Approach has the ability to go close but was let down by his jumping last time and he will need to improve in that department if he is to trouble the principals and with this in mind for the winner we return to Chabrimal Minster who will relish the conditions.
