Verdict

PROLINX has been quite highly tried over fences so far but ran his best race so far when only three lengths behind Marie Des Anges in a novices' handicap at Newbury earlier this month and may just stay on too strongly for Mentalist. The latter won over 2m at Ludlow in November but has now been found wanting three times this longer trip. Reasonable Force has been well beaten on all four starts over the larger obstacles and would need significant improvement to figure while Zazamix has gone backwards since winning at Wetherby more than a year ago.
