Verdict

Royale Knight was backed off the boards at Newton Abbot after a successful spell in point-to-points but found little when push came to shove and has still to make the frame in 11 starts under Rules. We have no problem taking him on here with the veteran RASH MOMENT, who is gradually getting back to full fitness judged on his latest fourth at Worcester and won off a 4lb higher mark at Ffos Las in March. Terra Bleu was due to run in a better race here yesterday but hasn't shown much over fences so far while Sulpius is only modest, though this is only his second start over the larger obstacles. The others haven't shown enough lately to warrant support.
