The Sportsman's Verdict
VALUE AT RISK isn't the most reliable but has dropped back to his last winning mark and the return to 2m4f could be just what is required to see Dan Skelton's enigmatic 10-year-old return to the winner's enclosure. Knockgraffon has done little wrong of late and jockey Aidan Coleman gets on well with Olly Murphy's charge, while Casablanca Mix could leave her disappointing Cheltenham outing behind off what could be a lenient mark back over fences.
