Verdict

ROB CONTI has improved with experience this year, winning at Bangor in August. He may well have beaten Sizing Santiago at Newton Abbot last time had Richard Johnson not dropped his whip and, though 6lb higher now, can gain compensation here. Niceonefrankie should go well as he won at Leicester and Newbury at the start of the year before finding the competition too hot in a Grade 3 at Cheltenham, but course winner Amaury De Lusignan tries a longer trip and Cootehill and Peachey Moment have rather lost their way lately. Top Smart won easily on his chasing debut and has obvious scope but the handicapper has taken no chances with Seamus Mullins' six-year-old.
