Verdict

Roberto Goldback has found a new lease of life under Nicky Henderson but the handicapper looks to have him firmly in his grip at present while Mister Hyde will need a career-best effort if he is to complete the hat-trick having been raised another 13lb since scoring at Kempton over Christmas, though subsequent Kempton winner Brackloon High was behind that day. KEPPOLS HILL lacks the experience of his rivals but bounced back from a fall at Exeter to land the odds with a bit in hand at Chepstow. He makes his handicap debut on a fair mark and, as this stiff track should play to his strengths, gets the nod today as Welsh National failure Viking Blond will ensure there is no hanging about. On Trend looks held on the book while Summery Justice returns from a lengthy absence.
