Verdict

Sparville got off the mark at Southwell at the second time of asking over fences. He's likely to improve further and should make another bold bid. He makes more appeal than the mare Smiling Lady while Bay Central and Wester Ross have become disappointing. DINEUR has been well beaten in two runs over fences so far and you could argue that he probably needs further than this. But he's throw in on his form over hurdles and Peter Bowen's charge has probably been waiting for the ground to dry out. He could be a blot on the handicap if fully primed. Piment D'Estruval has won three times over the larger obstacles and is another who'll enjoy the going, though he looks a shade high in the weights ahead of his return.
