Verdict

Old stager Rash Moment could make the frame in this but it's difficult to see him overturning course running last month with Sulpius, though Bob Buckler's gelding blotted his copybook when coming a cropper at Folkestone next time. However, he still looks the danger to the unexposed LAPIN GAROU. Nick Williams' five-year-old was clearly still in need of the experience when tailed off at Uttoxeter as he'd pulled up in his only previous run over fences in France. But he's the type his trainer excels with and he would have to go close in this if he was to have a future. Brousse En Feux, Solitary Palm and Midnight Charmer could all figure if the principals disappoint again.
