Verdict

A winner over fences in France in 2012, Upepito has his first start for Venetia Williams in this. It would be no surprise to see him involved at the business end but FIRTH OF THE CLYDE may have too much for him on this occasion. The latter has taken really well to fences and further progress is expected on the back of a win at Wetherby. Flaming Gorge has struggled off higher marks since winning over these fences last year but a conditional's allowance could see him back in the mix, while Great Oak is also back on a winning mark now and showed signs of a resurgence over timber at Fakenham last month.
