Verdict

Serenity Now already has placed efforts at Wetherby and Sedgefield to his name and is likely to be a factor again here. Got The Nac was fourth at Down Royal earlier this month while fellow Irish raider Res Ipsa Loquitur stayed on in the closing stages at Punchestown and should improve. Gurkha Brave was prominent for a long way at Warwick last December but hasn't been seen since and we prefer DEGOOCH. He's following a well-worn path for his yard having won a point-to-point at Toomebridge in May - he should have the pace for this. Chidswell could be the best of the newcomers.
