Verdict

Ackertac had drawn a blank over fences before landing this last year for the Twiston-Davies team. But today's representative, DOUBLE ROSS, has already won one of his four starts in chases when successful at Perth in September. Dropped 4lb after a recent fourth at Chepstow, he gets the nod. Simply Wings looks a threat off his current mark on his comeback third at Stratford but last month's Kempton winner Gallox Bridge has done most of his winning over shorter trips. Both of Greywell Boy's chase wins came over 2m and Niceonefrankie still looks in need of some respite from the handicapper.
