ARTY CAMPBELL is at the veteran stage now, but his recent Flat efforts have been respectable and he could easily still have a race in him off this sort of mark. New Zealander ran well from out of the weights at Stratford last month and is feared most ahead of Masterdream, who won in Jersey last time. Bullion also needs keeping an eye on in the betting on his first run for Evan Williams yard.
A chance is taken on a wind op making the difference for WISE GLORY as he really should have races in him over hurdles based on his useful Flat ability. Irish-recruit Loved Out and David Pipe hurdle newcomer Flammarion are the obvious threats.
FIFRELET showed a willing attitude when making it 2-3 in bumpers at Worcester two weeks ago, setting solid foundations for a switch to hurdling. He gets the nod to continue the good work now his attentions are switched to timber. Fellow hurdles debutant Bari Breeze is fancied to give him most to think about.
FAINT HOPE made an upwardly-mobile sort work for it at Warwick a week ago and he has lot to recommend him from the same mark. Montys Medoc and Docpickedme should have more to offer this term and head the opposition.
An open handicap, so at the likely odds it’s worth siding with LISRONAGH STONE to gain his breakthrough victory given he promises to be suited by this staying trip and has been dropped to a handy-looking mark by the official assessor. Hat-trick seeking Espinator rates the obvious threat despite now figuring on a career-high mark, although To Be Sure is another with the potential to play a part.
HOOPER unseated at the last with the race at his mercy on his chase debut at Stratford three weeks ago and the improving youngster should make amends here with Nico de Boinville back up. Shang Tang is a useful hurdler who could do even better over the larger obstacles this season and he’s an interesting rival.
MICK PASTOR is getting his act together over fences and can make his class tell in this handicap with a third straight win. Tikkinthebox had a rare wobble here last time but can get back on track and looks the forecast option.
