Verdict

Quotica De Poyans has won all three starts over this C&D and looks a nice prospect. He has the beating of Ardnaclancy on recent running but hasn't come up against this quality of opposition before and his tendency to make mistakes could cost him dear against the likes of ROBBERS GLEN. Valerie Jackson's gelding may be an 11-year-old now but regularly competes against the best hunter chasers in the country and has looked as good as ever in a couple of points this year. He's preferred to former David Pipe inmate Abragante, who hasn't been seen since finishing third in a handicap over the Grand National fences at Aintree 18 months ago.
