Verdict

Several of these ran in the La Touche here on Thursday including Arabella Boy, who started joint favourite and was making headway when brought down. Outlaw Pete had just taken the lead when unshipping his rider five out while the front-running De Danu fell when fading at the second last. Sizing Australia was a good fourth in the Cross Country at the Cheltenham Festival on ground that was too quick while last year's runner-up Zest For Life was a close third in the Ladies Perpetual here on Tuesday. Cooldine is in a completely different league to these over regulation fences having competed mainly at Grade 1 level since landing the RSA Chase at Cheltenham in 2009. However, this will be his first run over these obstacles and he hasn't been in the best of form so it's ON THE FRINGE, who has returned to action in good form after a very long break and who should be ideally suited by the track, who is handed the vote.
