In depth

Verdict

Up To Something lost his unbeaten record when pulled up at Uttoxeter last time. If soft ground was the problem than he'll be in trouble again here and ANGLES HILL gets another chance. He's become a bit frustrating after a string of placed efforts but will find life easier in novice company and should have too much for the unexposed Cloud Creeper. The latter makes his hurdling debut today but is preferred to Abruzzi, who turned in a poor display on his first attempt at hurdling. The remainder have plenty to find and make no appeal on their form to date.
