Verdict

The two newcomers are worth noting in the market but we'll row in with the experience of FIDDLERS BID. He has plenty of experience from the point-to-point field and made a pleasing debut in the decent Cheltenham bumper won by the highly regarded Southfield Theatre when a staying-on third. He should come on considerably for that effort and is preferred to three contenders who have all shown winning form of some note in the point-to-point arena, namely The Nephew, Horizontal Speed and The Boogeyman. The market should reveal expectations about the trio who are preferred in that order at this stage. Call A Truce wasn't disgraced on his Huntingdon debut last April when a decent fourth to House Party.
