Verdict

Gold Ingot came good over course and distance in May but, like June's Gowran scorer Ballinalacken, has a penalty to carry in this. Mr Moss has only three times over hurdles and has a rating of 138 over fences and can't be ignored while Warden Hill was placed in decent company at Doncaster and Kempton last season and is another for the short-list. Ex-pointer Andy Kelly could be worth following but HOWLONGISAFOOT can cap a good day for Paul Nicholls by landing this. He's already won a point-to-point and a bumper and has an excellent NH pedigree. Master Benjamin should also be winning soon judged on last year's efforts, though his future may lie back in handicaps.
