Verdict

A competitive affair in which THEOLOGIST is taken to supplement Newcastle gains under Joshua Moore who takes the mount once again. The selection stayed on with great resolution over three miles on soft ground that day, prior to which he had put together an admirably consistent series of efforts in decent handicap company. A genuine sort, he still looks on an acceptable mark despite a 10lb rise for that success on Tyneside. Tour Des Champs also makes appeal as he's clearly unexposed after just the three runs, most recently when a satisfactory third to Big Occasion at Chepstow. He looks nicely weighted for this move into open handicaps. Oscargo looked a really interesting stayer in the making when sweeping aside Kayf Aramis at Cheltenham before tipping up there early last time. Harry Derham takes off a valuable 7lb and the gelding could easily be good enough here but he's yet to operate on soft ground and is just passed over for that reason.
