Verdict

After 19 attempts to get off the mark, GOAT CASTLE can hardly be a confident choice here but his latest third at Hereford wasn't a bad effort and he does get 14lb from Sunday's Carlisle runner-up Livvy Inn. Lucinda Russell's charge also struggles to get his head in front. Ravi River is another who is thoroughly exposed and still a maiden over hurdles while Prize Fighter hasn't seen action since finishing second off a lower mark at Wetherby at the end of May. Nisaal also returns from a lay-off.
