Verdict

Watered Silk won a beginner's chase at Uttoxeter in July and may be capable of better. He has more scope than Sedgefield third Sir Lynx but it might be worth taking a chance on the fitness of VIKING RIDGE. He makes his chasing bow after more than two years off the track but A P McCoy has been booked and he'll have had plenty of schooling. Presenting The Way also tackles fences for the first time under Rules and is another interesting recruit having already won a point-to-point.
