Verdict

NO COMMENT may have failed to get a win on the board since 2017 but there's a strong suspicion that the JP McManus runner is well-handicapped and he showed enough in a handicap here at last year's Festival to think he could go well. Vinndication looks like another who could well be ahead of his mark while the likes of Cepage and Cogry have good course form and look capable of hitting the frame.
