Verdict

TOP VILLE BEN has to give a penalty away here but looked a horse with plenty more improvement to come at Leicester and his jumping, which was a little careful at times, should improve here. He comes here rather than taking up any of the engagements he has over the next few days and the hint should be taken. Count Meribel did little wrong last time and will give Top Ville Ben a bit to think about, and any market support for First Du Charmil should be noted. 1. Top Ville Ben 2. Count Meribel 3. First Du Charmil
