Verdict

Dr Dalwhinny is not a leading light of the McCain team but has contested well on most starts and his recent Worcester runner-up performance when outbattled close home rates the best form on show. However, he faces an interesting newcomer in the shape of AUTUN, a former Juddmonte performer who won on the Flat for both Sir Henry and Lady Cecil. He was withdrawn at Market Rasen on Saturday on his intended debut presumably on account of the softened ground but could have too much class for this field first time up if conditions remain good. Perennial has shown sufficient in two hurdling starts to be a possible whilst May's Boy has been consistent enough to date to harbour each-way claims for his local yard after finishing runner-up to Zip Wire here last time.
