Verdict

TALKONTHESTREET can be excused his run at Cheltenham, his first since April. He beat Grove Pride easily over hurdles at Ludlow in the spring and is fancied to make a winning start to his career over fences, though Keppols Hill will be a danger. Paul Nicholls' ex-pointer was only beaten a short-head on his debut under Rules at Ffos Las and can only improve. Allthekingshorses is a stablemate of the selection and another that should be worth following in the months ahead while Pericoloso won over hurdles here last month, though consistency isn't a strong point. Calon Crwbin, Low Gales and Theatrical Star have ability and add to the interest.
