Verdict

French Canadian was readily outpaced by Robin Will at Leicester but the winner looks a useful hunter chaser in the making and this looks easier. Penmore Hill has been well backed in both starts under Rules but found little under pressure at Lingfield after falling at Kelso and is in danger of becoming disappointing. DREAMY GEORGE is three out of three in point-to-points and these fences aren't the biggest. He may be the one to be on if his jumping holds up, though any market interest in another recent points winner The Goldmeister would be interesting.
