Verdict

PINK GIN scored well in novice company at Newton Abbot in March and is forgiven a tame effort on final start last season in a race won by Lac Sacre. He has potential in this sphere and, given the form of Nigel Twiston-Davies' string lately, it won't come as any surprise to see him bounce back on his reappearance. Gamain should be capable off this rating switched back to fences and is respected despite fading last time over timber at Hexham. Johns Luck has stamina issues to address on reappearance and may need the run while Fair To Middling must rebuild confidence after two mishaps in September. On best form, Drumviredy and Lac Sacre are perfectly entitled to go well, ensuring market checks are called for.
