Verdict

Carlito Brigante mastered Domtaline close home at Cheltenham eights days ago but the latter's trainer, Paul Nicholls, may enjoy some measure of revenge here with his UNIONISTE receiving 10lb from Gordon Elliott's charge. There's a theory that the former isn't entirely straightforward while the latter jumped with zest when winning for Guillaume Macaire at Auteuil in May and should continue to progress. Rebel Dancer was taking on experienced handicappers at Market Rasen last time and should find this easier while Distime is an interesting newcomer but Inoogoo took a heavy fall at Perth and may need his confidence rebuilding.
