In depth

Verdict

RADUIS BLEU looks to have every chance in this company. Not beaten far when fourth in a higher grade at Ludlow last time, he should be up to landing this with a similar effort. Bendant looked like claiming a place before falling at this venue but Armedanddangerous failed to cope with a 10lb rise at Carlisle when last seen at the track back in February. Robin Will won a couple of hunter chases early in the year but has more on his plate here.
