Verdict

Reve De Sivola is undoubtedly the class act in this but has the weight to match and, like out-and-out stayer Le Beau Bai, doesn't win as often as he should. The ground may be too loose for Ouzbeck and Templer, while Pilgrims Lane has gone off the boil and Bellflower Boy is high enough in the weights over fences now. Five Dream could be interesting, however, and Le Burf is capable of running well fresh and well treated on his best form. But BORN AGAIN could be the interesting one here as he's unexposed over the larger obstacles. The step up in trip will suit and he jumped like an old hand when successful over 2m4f at Haydock just under a year ago.
