Verdict

Balnagore was a long way behind when Sheriff Hall won this 12 months ago. George Charlton's six-year-old is 6lb higher now but should be all the better for a recent run at Hexham and has to go on the short-list again. Amazing Star was a cosy winner at Uttoxeter last time and may be capable of even better if brushing up his jumping. He should also go close and makes more appeal than Fakenham second Catawollow and the luckless King's Chorister. Capricornus is tried in blinkers after disappointing so far this term but has to give weight to PARC DES PRINCES. Suited by sharp tracks, he's twice gone close off his new mark since winning at Bangor in August and deserves a change of luck.
