Verdict

Though only a four-year-old, Take Over Sivola has already had 10 runs over fences in France. He only beat Taratata Sivola by a neck off level weights at Auteuil in June, however, and that one was well beaten off a similar mark at Uttoxeter in September. STRONGBOWS LEGEND showed promise last season and stayed on well to finish second to Humbie at Carlisle on his reappearance. The winner ran well again at that track on Sunday while third Ngong Hills was second to well-treated Wide Receiver at Wetherby last week so the form looks solid and Charlie Longsdon's six-year-old can go one better today. Honourable Arthur may have been over the top when pulled up at Uttoxeter in March, while Victors Serenade has done well here over hurdles and will be all the better for his chasing debut at Carlisle. Neil Harvey and In The Zone return from a lay-off but are others likely to improve on what they've shown so far along with Rockabilly.
