Verdict

Mon Chevalier is gradually coming down the weights but Unwanted Gift has a poor strike rate between the flags and under Rules and likely to find at least one too good again here. Knapp Bridge Boy isn't getting any younger and returns from a break but did finish ahead of Sablazo on similar terms at Hereford in December. JACKERS has hardly set the world alight over fences so far but this three-times hurdles winner still has time on his side and could easily improve past modest opposition with Steven Clements good value for his 7lb claim.
