Verdict

VOLNAY DE THAIX faces a simple task as he bids to follow up his easy win at Kempton. Nicky Henderson's French import has frightened away any serious opposition and will start at very short odds. Pelmanism won over 1m1f on the Polytrack but whether he'll stay 2m is debatable. Peak Storm was also a miler on the Flat and has shown little in two hurdle runs, though did finish ahead of The Master Remover at Ludlow last time.
