In depth

Verdict

Ian Williams' stable is flying and DRUMLANG has been dropped 3lb since finishing third to Christopher Wren over course and distance on Sunday. The faster ground isn't a problem and most of his rivals have a bit to prove at recent form. Chicklemix could be interesting as she had excuses when tailed off last time at Towcester. She's not badly treated on her hurdles form but What An Oscar and Points of View were pulled up last time and the handicapper may have got to Roc De Guye. Morgan's Bay will have needed his run at Bangor and makes most appeal of the remainder.
