Verdict

What Of It won this last year but was soon tailed off at Ludlow last month in a race in which Shrewd Investment was second and Warwickshire fourth. Both the latter pair were also well beaten, however, and lack the scope of David Dunsdon's Utopian, who was a very easy winner at Fakenham last month. HIMALAYAN EXPRESS left it much too late at Cheltenham last time and was also let down by his jumping. But he's effective over this trip and is fancied to get back on track if close enough on the final circuit.
