Verdict

VICENTE was placed in all three starts in France including his latest outing over hurdles at Auteuil. He's since joined Paul Nicholls and can make a winning start for new connections in this. Minellaforleisure has a shout on his best form in bumpers and Toowoomba has won a point-to-point. Rule Of Thumb is a bumper winner at Fontwell but has shown little in three starts over hurdles while Henwood and Berkeley Avenue will need to improve as they take on obstacles for the first time.
