Verdict

GRADUATION NIGHT had very little to do to beat three rivals at Wincanton but jumped really well and looks capable of defying a penalty from this mark. Gunner Rose has won twice on good going over 2m5f at Southwell this summer and will find this much more of a stamina test and a bigger threat may emerge in the shape of Billy Murphy, despite an absence since April as he has gone well over this C&D in the past. Just The Job was beaten a long way on his chasing debut over 2m4f here last month and the remaining pair have been absent for some time.
