Verdict

Explained couldn't match the pace of Lac Sacre at Ffos Las but that was over the minimum trip and the extra here will suit. He looks sure to go well but it's difficult to make a case for Desgrey as he's still a maiden and been beaten a long way on his last couple of starts. Deciding Moment created a surprise when scoring at Wincanton but hasn't done as well subsequently while Walkabout Creek has disappointed so far over fences and needs to get back to his hurdling form. Tour D'Argent has yet to score over fences so by process of elimination the vote goes to STAIGUE FORT, who is making his debut over fences but looks well enough treated on the balance of his form over timber.
