Verdict

It looked a soft race that Arkaim won at Leicester eight days ago but you can't fault his record this season. Doynosaur and Able Deputy would have a chance on their best form but the jury is out on Tante Sissi and Kitegen may need this. Easily Pleased will strip fitter for a recent spin over hurdles at Wincanton but French import NOCHE DE REYES looks to be improving with experience over fences and is potentially better treated than his rivals.
