Verdict

It will probably take a decent performance to lower the colours of KING MASSINI, who beat useful opposition at Cheltenham last Friday and looks to be on an upward curve. Doctor Foxtrot is the dark horse in the race as he had some fair form over hurdles last season. His first run over fences at Sandown was a disappointment but better is expected in time. Cootehill rarely runs a bad race but looks to be in the handicapper's grip and Rydalis couldn't win off a lower mark against lesser opposition here last time. Big News was in contention when falling on his reappearance at Chepstow but is another who would benefit from a lower rating.
