Verdict

After 20 attempts, Safe Investment is still a maiden over fences and it says much about this contest that he's likely to be one of the market leaders today. Dot Or Feather won over hurdles at Wetherby in the autumn, however, and has already been successful in a point-to-point. He could go close on his first start over regulation fences while Frameit arguably has more scope than most. CHEVY TO THE LEVY has gone well fresh in the past and, though pulled up when last seen in September, is taken to get the better of some very modest opposition today.
