Verdict

Amigo races over fences for the first time in this country but won a couple of times in France. Simply Wings proved consistent last season while Harry Hunt won over course and distance in May and was successful in a staying handicap on the Flat earlier this month. Bennys Mist and Rouge Et Blanc may be best watched on their reappearance but Mart Lane could run well off a decent mark, though THE DRUIDS NEPHEW is preferred. Andy Turnell's charge is back in the right grade and will go very close if reproducing his comeback run at Ascot last season when only beaten a nose by Hadrian's Approach, who went on to finish third in the RSA Chase at Cheltenham.
