Verdict

Randjo was well beaten on his final start last season and is 13lb higher than when scoring at Fontwell in January. Be Definite won over hurdles in May and is now better handicapped over fences but Taratata Sivola has begun his handicap career over fences on much too high a mark judged by his recent run at Uttoxeter, though the fast ground could have been the reason for such a poor run. Oscar Gogo likes heavy ground and has won over hurdles here but this can go to I CAN RUN CAN YOU. Jonjo O'Neill's charge is bred for chasing and is making his debut over fences from what could prove to be a very lenient handicap mark.
