Verdict

Futuramic ran a fine race to be second at Navan in November and has claims on the back of it but he's not the most reliable individual around. Handicap debutant Soir De Chantenay gets a mention on his French form while Wood Breizh should be fitter after last month's return to the track and merits respect. Belclare Boy should figure if the step up in trip doesn’t inconvenience but SMADYNIUM gets the nod having been running well over fences lately. He's got a cracking chance off current ratings if bringing that form to the table. 1. Smadynium 2. Belclare Boy 3. Futuramic
