Verdict

Sealous Scout attempted to make all at Sedgefield and only faded close home so with that under his belt he looks certain to go well. Exitas is bred to be a staying chaser so this looks between the two previous winners. Oscar Hoof came here for his debut three weeks ago and started odds-on. His supporters had few anxious moments and he put daylight between himself and his rivals in the closing stages and will be very difficult to beat. CENTASIA was equally impressive at Wincanton in October when trained by Seamus Durack. David Pipe handled the runner-up that day and now has charge of the winner, who made an astonishing £155,000 at the Cheltenham sales the following month. In receipt of the mares' allowance she can get the better of her main rival and start to repay some of that outlay.
