Verdict

A tight looking handicap but Pacco can make a bold attempt to defy a 7lb rise for his victory over this trip on heavy ground at Folkestone. Sweden was suited by the testing conditions when outbattling Pak Jack at Ffos Las when Kildonnan finished fourth. The latter looked badly in need of the run and has a chance of reversing the form though the winner has much more scope. La Pantera Rosa is not the safest of jumpers and fell when in front here last month. He's decent enough when getting his act together and isn't without a chance here. With the ground drying out, QUATTROCENTO, a winner at Cheltenham in October, would have as good a chance as any as he has been competing in much better company. He's won from a similar mark to this in the past and his rider's claim will be a big help.
