Verdict

OCKEY DE NEULLIAC won this last year by 13 lengths under John Winston and proved his well-being by scoring a shade cosily on his reappearance over C&D. He is probably a more reliable prospect than Spear Thistle, though Jim Best's gelding was taking on much better opposition at this time last year and has the proverbial ton in hand on official ratings. Power Pack Jack has won three times over fences but has been out of form this season and has never made the frame in six hurdle runs while Makhzoon has run a couple of stinkers since completing a double at Perth at the start of the summer.
