Verdict

Trozulon was pulled-up after a bad mistake at Southwell on his chasing bow but it's too soon to write him off. LORD NAVITS made a better fist of it on his first start over fences when scoring by 10 lengths at Leicester. He has a hike in the weights to contend with but there should be more to come over the larger obstacles and he's just preferred to Jeanry. The latter carries a penalty after opening his chasing account at Chepstow and should also make another bold bid. The remaining pair are harder to fancy trying their luck over fences for the first time.
