Verdict

SHERNAZ pops across the Irish Sea having won for the first time over fences at Tramore last month. He's 7lb higher today but should be capable of better now he's got his head in front and makes more appeal than El Diego. The latter has been threatening to open his account over the larger obstacles of late but still isn't the most fluent of jumpers and usually finds one too good. Kaycee was runner-up in a novice handicap over these fences a fortnight ago and could be thereabouts, but Catch The Rascal is hard to fancy.
