Verdict

Falcarragh and Watered Silk are best watched at present although both undoubtedly have the talent to get involved if fully wound-up. Able Deputy is proving a source of frustration to Kim Bailey with regard to his propensity to always find one too good but the champion jockey is given another opportunity to put things right after that pair filled the runner-up spot at Carlisle last time behind Swaledale Lad. This is far from easy, though, with recent winner Woodbank heading the weights. He notched a first chasing success last time on his first run for Dan Skelton but does tend to take a chance at times with his obstacles and UT MAJEUR AULMES is preferred. The Dartnall inmate has taken well to fences and was the beneficiary of a typically cool ride from Denis O'Regan at Perth when scoring last time. He should improve again as this is only his third start over fences.
