Verdict

French Ties has won four times over fences, including once here. But he's been a little below par this season and is approaching the veteran stage now. CRAFTI BOOKIE has been campaigned over much further since finishing fourth on his chasing bow over 2m4f at Newcastle. He will be a lot happier dropped in distance and should be able to win a race or two off this sort of mark. Vardas Supreme is thoroughly exposed and Galway Jack also holds few secrets from the handicapper but Financial Climate should continue heading in the right direction after his second at Fontwell and looks a danger.
