Verdict

Mcvicar, who won at Kempton and Huntingdon around this time last year, may well prove the pick of the four-year-olds in this. Valid Reason ran well on the Flat at York last month and has a chance on his best form but Hawkhill has become disappointing and the once-raced Chat Room has a bit to prove at this level. UBALDO DES MENHIES should have won more than once last season but was a beaten favourite on a couple of occasions after winning easily at Fakenham. However, he loves soft ground and his yard is going well at present. Another handicap debutant, Ut Majeur Aulmes, may be the pick of the remainder.
