In depth

Verdict

The switch to Tony Coyle appears to have been the making of BILLY CUCKOO and, having done very little wrong in defeat at Carlisle last month, the six-year-old should be capable of gaining compensation. Flying Squad seems to have been around forever but Rose Dobbin's charge should appreciate conditions having won three chases where the going has been on the testing side. With just one win from 23 chases, the record of Or D'Oudairies would ordinarily be off-putting but Ferdy Murphy's inmate was heavily backed at Catterick last month and the handicapper appears to have him in off what looks be a helpful mark at present. Along Came Rosie looked progressive when scoring over C&D in May while Twice Lucky wouldn't be out of it if he consents to produce a much-needed clear round.
