The Sportsman's Verdict
FIDUX ran a solid race to finish third at Cheltenham last month and with the winner of that contest franking the form with victory in the Grade 3 Swinton Hurdle last weekend, Alan King's game six-year-old must have a fantastic chance of building on that Prestbury Park effort off the same mark. Solo Saxophone is likely to prove popular in search of a hat-trick, while Neverbeen To Paris won in style at Kempton earlier this month and is of interest under a 7lb penalty.
