Verdict

Victory Parade is the only one with chasing experience and concedes weight all round as a result of a convincing success at Wincanton. However, he's failed to complete in three of his six chases and made mistakes too when scoring in Somerset. He is clearly a risky proposition and GILWEN GLORY is taken as a value alternative in receipt of plenty of weight all round. She needs to be forgiven a below par effort here last time but does enjoy a course win to her name over timber. Markington has also disappointed in recent outings and Native Taipan arrives on the back of a substantial absence in a race with question marks hanging over the whole field.
