Verdict

LECALE'S ARTICLE hasn't been seen out since winning his only start in an Irish point in April 2018, but he's in excellent hands and this doesn't look the strongest of races by Newbury standards, so he's expected to get the job done. Restandbethankful has shown enough in bumpers to suggest he should have a future in this sphere, while Dan Skelton's French-recruit Frankeur also needs considering.
