Verdict

Arbeo's win at Newbury in December has worked out well and he followed up at Huntingdon. He's 10lb higher than his latest success, however, and seems better over 3m. BALLYALLIA MAN has been running at Wincanton this winter so will have to accustom himself to strange surroundings but he has the form in the book to suggest he can defy top weight here as this is his trip. Oscar Davy hasn't really taken to fences and Brunswick Gold also has a bit to prove while Inthejungle is raised in class and has never won anywhere but Plumpton since arriving in this country.
