Verdict

Kensington Oval finally opened his account over hurdles at Towcester but this formerly smart Flat performer is probably worth opposing as he attempts to defy a 5lb rise in the weights. L'ELDORADO proved very disappointing on his seasonal return on the face of things but it could be worth giving him the chance to atone on his handicap bow as all of his best form has been with cut in the ground and this surface could see him leave that form behind. Viscount Rossini has the services of a talented conditional and it would be no surprise to see him run a big race on his seasonal return. Art Exhibition is capable but has proved difficult to catch right and of more interest is Quel Ballistic who ran a promising race on his British debut which came on the back of an 800 day absence.
