Verdict

PENMORE HILL was always travelling strongly when beat French Canadian over course and distance last month, though did idle after jumping the last. That experience can give him the edge over winning pointers Bavard Court and Firmount Beech, who both tackle regulation fences for the first time today. Native Bob was second at Huntingdon when last seen under Rules last May but recent form between the flags is a bit off-putting.
