Verdict

Third Intention won a match at Cheltenham last month, his first success in eight attempts over fences though he's come up against some smart novices in his career to date. WONDERFUL CHARM could be another as he jumped superbly when making a winning start at Fakenham last month and, as he was a Grade 2 winner over hurdles, he can make his mark at this higher level. Fox Appeal was only beaten a neck at Fontwell on his chasing bow and should be winning soon while Meister Eckhart looks another useful recruit as he has been keep good company over the smaller obstacles.
