Verdict

It's only a matter of time before WYCHWOODS BROOK opens his account over timber and it could be today. The Sandown bumper winner found only Red Devil Boys too good at Doncaster last time and gets the nod. Key To The West has also been placed of late though he was still well beaten when runner-up at Uttoxeter and Market Rasen winner Saints And Sinners looks a bigger danger despite a below par effort last time. Barton Jubilee may figure if taking to hurdles and bumper winner Titchwood can only improve on his disappointing efforts over hurdles so far.
