Verdict

Via Sundown has won a couple of handicaps at Lingfield recently but steps up in grade for this and Joshua Moore is unable to claim his allowance due to the prize money on offer. BLACK THUNDER had only two rivals to beat in a Grade 2 at Lingfield last month but was conceding weight to both and stayed on strongly to win going away. He looks a smart novice and should be too good for these. Corrin Wood hasn't done a lot wrong so far in winning at Bangor and Catterick but he was rated 17lb lower than the selection over hurdles so also has a bit to prove. Court Victory is starting off over fences at an elevated level and a two-year absence is also a worry.
