Verdict

MR SHANTU, third in a jumpers' bumper on the Polytrack last month, is preferred to Fergal O'Brien's bumper winner Son Of Suzie and Taunton fourth John Louis. Jonjo O'Neill's gelding seems to be learning with experience and will have been well schooled. Mister Frosty, second on the Fibresand earlier this month, could make his presence felt while Neighbourhood has won three times on that surface. Points winner Paddocks Lounge looks the pick of the remainder.
