Verdict

SALDEN LICHT was beaten less than a length by Vulcanite at Hereford last month in his first start for 18 months. On 7lb better terms, Alan King's classy recruit to chasing should reverse the form here and is much preferred to the frustrating Vino Griego, who fell when quite well backed at Ascot last time and has now had 16 attempts to break his duck over the larger obstacles. Double Or Quitz and Tchang Goon will just be making up the numbers if they others aren't let down by their jumping.
