Verdict

Bodega got off the mark over hurdles at Ludlow last month at the fifth attempt but most of his rivals also arrive in decent form. Roman Flight only found Figaro half-a-length too good at Musselburgh but the winner has let the form down since and he's 5lb higher now. Seventh Sky wasn't beaten far at Wincanton last time while it would be no surprise to see the lightly-raced Kuda Huraa run well after a break and he makes more appeal than Jumps Road. TIQRIS was second in a Listed contest at Exeter last month after winning easily at Wetherby in January. He doesn't look badly treated on those efforts so gets the vote.
