Verdict

Peaceful Means has been showing a little improvement but will need much more to trouble this trio. Bacher Boy was in cracking form over hurdles on fast ground last summer and is with the right yard to turn him into a chaser. A recent run in a charity event at Punchestown will have put him straight and the weight he receives from the two winners will help. Montoya's Son is doing well over fences and probably found the minimum trip against him here last time after scoring over further at Carlisle. He looks certain to go well but WAKE BOARD won with such authority at Bangor that he gets the vote before going on to better things.
