In depth

Verdict

Third Act never figured in the Champion Bumper at Cheltenham but will no doubt attract support on his hurdling debut. However, the experience of NORDIC QUEST should stand him in good stead and he gets the vote on the back of a couple of placed efforts over track and trip. Fair Dreamer also made the frame at this track last time and can be given a chance, but Ma'Ire Rua was still beaten a distance when third here last month. Revaader has lost his way a little but can get involved if reproducing the promise of his earlier form at Exeter.
