Verdict

MEDIOLANUM looks capable of going one better than on his hurdling bow at Aintree on debut for the yard and this expensive purchase should be able to land this contest before being stepped up in trip. Great Esteem took a step forwards to win at Wincanton in first time cheekpieces but he now has a penalty to contend with in a stronger race so will need to continue to improve. Oddjob was well held in a bumper at this track but this half-brother to Ground Ball may prove to be more at home over obstacles and he's considered along with Whereveryougoigo who disappointed at Worcester but it's possible that his confidence was affected by a fall on his hurdling bow and he remains capable of better with the drop to the minimum in his favour.
