Verdict

Royal Guardsman unseated his rider at the first at Kempton last Saturday and has become expensive to follow. Sheriff Hutton and Deciding Moment return following a break, as does SAVANT BLEU but we are going to give Kim Bailey's charge a tentative vote. He goes well fresh and is only a couple of pounds higher than when scoring at Wetherby less than a year ago. Mic's Delight has been placed in his last three starts and is slowly sliding down the weights. He should have place claims again while Ziga Boy ran well over hurdles here last month and won over fences in France. Shockingtimes wasn't beaten far at Market Rasen on Boxing Day and looks the pick of the remainder.
