Verdict

SHOOTING TIMES has only run twice over fences and can race from a lower mark than over timber. He showed his well-being with a good run at Ayr earlier this month and looks well enough treated to gain his first success. Dukeofchesterwood has had plenty of experience over the bigger obstacles but his best form has come in less testing conditions and he may find the selection too strong in the closing stages. Mansonien L'As jumps and stays well enough to be a major threat though he'd probably be better over a longer trip and he's 8lb higher than for his only success.
