Verdict

Green To Gold was entered in a handicap chase at Lingfield on Saturday but would have decent claims if diverted here instead. Leopard Hills has already won four times this year but hasn't raced since June, while King Fingal disappointed when finishing behind Joan D'Arc at Market Rasen after finishing second on his reappearance at Musselburgh. Ministerofinterior could strip fitter for his run at Wetherby but it's difficult to look beyond ASCENDANT in this. The five-year-old has his first start for Paul Nicholls and hasn't raced since April but bolted up in a much stronger contest at Sedgefield when last seen and need only run within a few pounds of that form to score here.
