Verdict

Aland Islands was only beaten a neck over C&D earlier this month but that was a little disappointing after his debut win at Newcastle and we'll take him on today with UNITED PARK. The four-year-old's career over fences took off last month with a couple of wide-margin wins at Auteuil and the sky's the limit now. Simonside ran well for a long way on his debut over fences at Doncaster and should have benefited from the experience but Hollins didn't impress on his only previous try over the larger obstacles and the other pair will do better once qualified for handicaps.
