Verdict

French import Majala is worth keeping an eye on making his debut for Tom George as he's been placed over fences in France. Alexander Road didn't get very far on his chasing bow when unseating his rider, though Mac Aeda did better at this track last time. Basford Bob also managed a clear round at Uttoxeter and he could figure, but the vote goes to TRUSTAN TIMES. Tim Easterby's consistent five-year-old added to his point-to-point and hurdle successes when scoring on his chasing bow at Sedgefield in November and looks the one to beat here.
