Verdict

Lukeys Luck has recorded a sequence of placed efforts and will no doubt be thereabouts again while the unpredictable Mylord Collonges has a shout if on a going day. Fontwell winner No No Bingo has made a decent start over fences and Red Rouble arrives on the back of a recent victory over these fences. Time To Think, Midnight Macarena and Ajzal are not out of this on their best form but a speculative vote goes to DASHING GEORGE, dropped in class after a couple of starts in much better company including when a close-up second at Aintree.
