Verdict

Koultas King has ability but is proving expensive to follow. Winning pointer King Massini needs to improve on his debut over hurdles at Stratford while Market Option has been well beaten in two starts over timber this autumn. DREAMS OF MILAN won a point-to-point at Dromahane in April and was sent off favourite for a bumper here at the start of the month when finishing third. The extra half-mile is certain to suit today and Donald McCain's charge should open his account over timber at the first time of asking, though French import American Life made a promising start behind Dawn Twister at Fontwell and can only improve.
