Verdict

Any one of this quartet could score here but the lightly-raced MONOGRAM has plenty of scope for this game and is taken to go one better after a promising debut over fences behind Mister Wall Street at Hexham. Fool's Wildcat had little to do to land a claiming hurdle at Perth and makes his chasing bow but Bocciani, though well beaten on his only start over fences, has improved dramatically over timber and looks certain to go well. King In Waiting has a penalty for his victory in a novice chase at Wetherby where he defied a last-fence blunder and his overall jumping is risky to say the least.
