Verdict

Ferdy Murphy sets a poser here by saddling both GAVROCHE GAUGAIN and On Gossamer Wings. The former has the better recent form and should be thereabouts in a race that won't take much winning. Well Oiled doesn't look the force of old while it's difficult to find much in the recent efforts of Personal Shopper and Murrell to merit consideration and though Local Present won at Worcester and Fakenham in the autumn, he's still on a 5lb higher mark here and hasn't shown much since.
