In depth

Verdict

Last year's Champion Hurdle runner-up Overturn will be a very short price here to follow up a debut success over fences at Sandown but will need to step up a couple of notches on that form to take this. At the likely odds, we will take a chance on WIESENTRAUM upsetting the apple cart. Lucy Wadham's charge came from a long way off the pace to score over C&D last month and is guaranteed a strong gallop here with Attaglance, third over 3m here last time, certain to take on Overturn at the head of affairs. Conquisto's jumping left something to be desired over track and trip 11 days ago but he still pulled readily clear of a decent field of novices and will have learned from the experience. He could be a danger under McCoy but What Er Say looks to be well out of his depth.
