Verdict

SHOEGAZER had no problem with the heavy ground at Hereford and has plenty of scope over the larger obstacles. He can make it two out of two in chases here though the five-year-old Tour Des Champs looks an interesting recruit to fences as he had some decent form over hurdles and was thought good enough to contest the Albert Bartlett at Cheltenham. Lady Everywhere won a novices' handicap at Chepstow last month and that experience will stand her in good stead while should also be more to come from Market Rasen second Nom Dom but Indian Daudaie and Prince Buster are starting to look exposed.
