Verdict

Prompter is a bit of an enigma and has been well beaten three times on the Flat since finishing third in a Listed handicap at Market Rasen in September. Decoy needs plenty of urging and may find this on the sharp side but Mcvicar shouldn't be far away if building on his third at Sandown while Jumps Road and Chepstow fourth Thundering Home have the past form to figure. ROMAN FLIGHT and Kieron Edgar were only beaten a length at Kempton 10 days ago. That was the top weight's first run since an excellent third at Market Rasen in July so more is expected here and the five-year-old could outclass these.
