Verdict

The form figures of PAPRADON are hardly the easiest to decipher with the emergent trend being one of inconsistency in what looks a right old puzzle of a race. However, he does receive the vote as he went well enough last time behind Traditional Bob at Ffos Las and does have a course and distance success to his name. Hopefully, Sam Twiston-Davies can nudge and cajole him into a performance good enough to land the spoils. Finding one to beat him is tricky too as Friendly Society and Bracken House both came to grief at the last at Stratford last time when still in contention, Tales Of Milan found some improvement last time but isn't guaranteed to repeat the dose and Addiction put some horrific form figures behind him when just beaten at Fontwell. He, too, cannot be relied upon to back up that improvement in a contest for small stakes only.
