Verdict

Ludlow winner Lightning Flash has to be feared with James Turner’s claim taking care of his penalty, but Anthony Honeyball does particularly well in bumpers and he runs five. The market should reveal plenty but DARK MATERIAL is a half-brother to this season’s Cheltenham bumper winner The Kemble Brewery and Sam Twiston-Davies is 8-22 for the yard this season.[Alistair Jones]
