Verdict

Cockney Trucker only gave best after the last when trying to make all at Cheltenham last time. He eventually finished just behind Monetary Fund but there shouldn't be much between the pair again today. Dynaste found only Aegean Dawn too good over 2m5f at Cheltenham last month on his second start for David Pipe and is entitled to respect along with Organisateur, though the latter has been raised 14lb for a cosy five-length win over C&D last month. Olofi has been running against better horses than this recently and holding his form well but GIFTED LEADER, travelling well when brought down at Aintree before finishing second at Haydock, is definitely worth another try over this longer trip and is probably still on a decent mark.
