Verdict

The novice Monarch's Way has won two of his last three starts and appears on an upward curve. He has solid claims here while Special Robon showed promise on his first start for Venetia Williams at Ludlow and, though a couple of Cheltenham entries look optimistic, will strip fitter here. Aine's Delight likes it here but, like Rajamand, may need this and Qalinas has had a year off. David Pipe also runs the maiden Shallow Bay but Bold Adventure is just as interesting if building on a recent second at Fontwell. GRANDIOSO has been a beaten favourite in both starts over hurdles but begins his career in handicaps on a potentially lenient mark and may be worth another chance.
