Verdict

CAPTAIN KELLY had every chance when beaten at odds-on in an amateurs' race at Taunton last week but still looks the one most likely to lose his maiden tag over hurdles in this. Double Chocolate has won four times over fences but appears an out-and-out stayer who may find this too sharp on the ground and hasn't raced since November. Monte Kaolino hinted at ability in bumpers but finished tailed off on his hurdling debut at Kempton, though should do better now given a stiffer test of stamina.
