Verdict

Front-runner Hopeand beat LOOKS LIKE SLIM by 10 lengths at Fakenham nine days ago when Radsoc De Sivola was a distant fourth. But the result may have been much different had the runner-up not tried to take the second-last by the roots. He was eased in the straight and should reverse running here on 7lb better terms if jumping a little better. Rasheed was second over hurdles here three weeks ago and looks a danger if translating that form to fences while the remainder have plenty to prove.
