Verdict

MIST THE BOAT gained his only success under Rules in a Taunton bumper on his second career start but was most unlucky when capsizing at the final flight on his penultimate start when holding a decisive advantage. Tim Vaughan's top weight has since had the rest comfortably accounted for chasing home Phar Away Island at Uttoxeter and is offered a solid opportunity to land a first success over timber. Unknown Legend's best piece of form came at this track but Moneymix looks a far likelier danger. Ali Brewer continues to make a good impression in the training ranks and her gelding has the form to play a part here and he'll enjoy the return to timber on the evidence of two recent starts over the larger obstacles.
