Verdict

RIVAL D'ESTRUVAL is bred to jump fences and should have more to offer. He was no match for Bold Sir Brian at Carlisle last month but the winner scored again at Sandown on Friday and Pauline Robson's novice faces nothing of his calibre here. Saphir River may struggle to last home over this trip on this stiff track while Hexham winner Papamoa appears to have plenty to find on the form book. The others have little to recommend them.
