Verdict

Kaysersberg is sure to be popular here having opened his account over hurdles at Kempton at the first time of asking. He's already won a bumper here but was some way adrift of IFYOUSAYSO in a Listed contest at Aintree in the spring. Donald McCain's charge had little to beat at Carlisle last month but has bags of scope and is expected to come out on top today. Midnight Oscar's third at Ludlow was a fair effort and he's another open to improvement but Mr Puck and Social Overdrive are returning from a break and Bop Along is starting to look exposed.
