Verdict

IMPERIAL LEADER is eased in grade and has been dropped a further pound since his latest sixth at Cheltenham when well ahead of Azure Fly. Connections will have welcomed recent rain and the Twiston-Davies' six-year-old, who usually attracts market support, should be good enough to beat these. Monetary Fund has dropped to a very attractive mark and a return to his best form would see him in the firing-line but Touch Back and San Telm were both pulled up on their latest starts and the mare Hopstrings steps out of novice company for the first time. Flaming Gorge hasn't run over hurdles since 2010 and looks to have too much weight.
