In depth

Verdict

Jumps Road and Celtus are both interesting making their debuts over the larger obstacles. Mountainous won twice here over hurdles last season for Nigel Twiston-Davies while Wings Of Smoke won over hurdles at Exeter on his return to action and also goes on the short-list along with four-year-old filly Jackies Solitaire, who had some decent form over timber around this time last year. OSCAR DAVY should come into his own now tackling fences, however, and can land this for Philip Hobbs having needed his comeback run at Fontwell. Howard's Legacy may prove the pick of the remainder.
