Verdict

Lackamon is the least exposed of these and could make a decent chaser in time. Sue Smith's charge will probably need this however. Majestic Mayhem was already struggling when unseating his rider at Bangor in July but has been rested since and should go close, despite his double penalty. Dystonia's Revenge only won a maiden hunter chase at Cartmel in May and is likely to find this company too hot so the vote goes to OUTLAW TOM. Though pulled up in a novices' handicap at Southwell last time, his earlier second to Supreme Keano was a decent effort and this tough track will suit.
