Verdict

Karazhan landed a bumper and a maiden hurdle in 2012 then completed a hat-trick in a jumpers bumper at Wolverhampton last January. He wasn't seen again until December where he ran quite well on his handicap debut and should be ready for this. Discovery Bay appears to need good ground, which he should get here, though he hasn't done as well as expected since completing a double at this time a year ago and he finished behind Smart Ruler at Musselburgh in January. Robbie's last two victories have been over fences, the latest from a higher mark than this, but a chance is taken on the jumping of ROMAN FLIGHT. He's well up to this task if getting his act together, as he did when runner-up at Musselburgh last month, though potential backers will need to note his erratic performance at Newbury last time.
