Verdict

Bury Parade hasn't convinced with his jumping so far and faces no easy task here conceding weight to some progressive young chasers. Saved By John ran well at Chepstow when chasing home Sew On Target but, like Escort'men and Be Definite, will be carrying more than his allotted weight in this so we're taking PARSNIP PETE to complete the hat-trick. Despite a couple of errors, he quickened nicely to score at Newbury at the end of November having won easily at Haydock earlier and still has plenty of scope. Nobunaga really needs further than this and hasn't raced since September.
