Verdict

The Boss is potentially well handicapped but hasn't impressed with his jumping so far. French Ties may found this company too hot and Douryna has a poor strike rate while Cabinet Minister has struggled a little since a promising start at Exeter in November. Roi De Rose would have strong claims if last month's Wincanton run was ignored but there was a lot to like about BALLYALLIA MAN's victory at Southwell last time. Tom George's former pointer kept finding more when challenged and could follow up if allowed his own way out in front again.
