Verdict

Montoya's Son has already won over fences at Carlisle and was still in contention when unseating his rider at Wetherby last week. He looks sure to go close with a clear round, but MAJESTIC MAYHEM is just preferred. George Moore's winning hurdler scored at the first time of asking over fences at Sedgefield last month and normal improvement can see him go in again. It's difficult to make a serious case for any of the remainder though Kyathos has been placed twice in chases and is less exposed than The Green Hat and The Iron Giant.
