Verdict

This can go to BELMONT PARK. David Bridgwater's gelding didn't do too badly to finish third in a beginners chase at Towcester last time (when a 1/4 favourite was well clear of the second with the selection just behind). There should be more improvement to come over fences, especially given he has been started off chasing straight from novice hurdles, which leaves little doubt about where connections think he will be best suited. Ultimate Dream is feared most provided he's on one of his 'going' days, ahead of Charlie Mon, who could finally get off the mark in a race lacking serious depth.
