Verdict

State Benefit displayed a willing attitude to get the better of Iron Chancellor on his debut over hurdles at Ffos Las. The Beneficial gelding looks a decent prospect but is arguably going to do even better when he tackles fences and may struggle to give 7lb here to JOIN TOGETHER. Fancied for an abandoned Grade 2 contest at Doncaster on Saturday, Paul Nicholls' six-year-old faces a more straightforward task here and is the one to beat on his close second to Mossley at Cheltenham in December. Super Villan has been running well over this trip in similar company and should reward each-way support again but it's difficult to envisage Ffos Las winner King Of Dubai following up under a penalty and more progressive is the lightly-raced Power Lord.
