Verdict

Fago is on a recovery mission having fallen when a hot favourite in a Grade 2 at Warwick earlier this month. He still has a couple of entries at Cheltenham but will have to jump better if here if he's to go The Festival and has to give weight to a couple of recent winners. Gallox Bridge made a winning start to his chase career at Market Rasen and should improve further but KAPGA DE CERISY handled these fences with aplomb at the start of the month when carrying top weight in a handicap and, at the likely odds, may just be the value on this occasion.
