Bumper winner who got off the mark over hurdles with the minimum of fuss at Ludlow (2m5f, good to firm), justifying odds-on favouritism; again has the best form here and should be hard to beat.

Form & Verdict
Improved since cheekpieces were added, scoring twice for Oliver Greenall in the spring and readily making a winning start for Paul Nicholls at Hereford (2m5f, good to soft) last week; while his task at Hereford was made easier by a couple of departures at the third last he was going strongly at the time anyway; 7lb penalty is offset by his rider's claim; the one to beat.

Form & Verdict
Goes well for Josh Newman, adding a 3m1f hurdle win at Warwick (good) this May to their two soft-ground point wins in 2020; might have needed the outing after five months off when a well-held fifth at Worcester four weeks ago but he'll need a step up a good deal on that to go close now.

6 yo Gelding

OR: 115

Form & Verdict
Bumper winner on soft; yet to hit the target over hurdles but he did make a fairly encouraging return from 11 months off (had wind op) when fourth of 12 at Ffos Las (2m4f, good to soft) 32 days ago; that form has been boosted by the winner and fifth going in since; tongue-tie and cheekpieces worn separately on his last two starts are now combined; yard in form; respected.
