Verdict

Winning hurdler Jomade may need the experience on his chasing bow and the lightly-raced Just Benny hasn't been seen for well over a year. That leaves NIGHT FORCE and Themilanhorse as likely winners with the former handed the vote to confirm recent running at Doncaster. Brendan Powell's charge made all and jumped superbly to see off his two rivals with Themilanhorse, who was odds-on for his chasing debut, not taking as well to the bigger obstacles and coming home nine lengths behind.
