Verdict

Bury Parade, beaten narrowly by Saved By John in a handicap last time, is unlikely to become a stable star but this probably won't take too much winning. Grey Gold was having only his second start over fences when scoring at Carlisle so he should be capable of better but it's KING OF THE NIGHT who is given the vote as he's been very highly tried in both starts over the bigger obstacles after once looking a really smart prospect over hurdles. Spirit River is also a once more than useful hurdler and he showed ability over fences at Kempton in November.
