Verdict

Separate Shadows only found Just Cameron too good on his hurdling debut at Bangor and will be fancied to go one better here. But the recent form of his yard is a bit of a concern so we'll take him on with SOMCHINE. Seamus Mullins' charge was brought down early on at Fontwell after promising second at Wincanton and Plumpton and deserves another chance. Panache was runner-up over track and trip on his latest outing but still beaten 19 lengths and lacks the scope of some of today's rivals.
