In depth

Verdict

This looks a decent bumper for the time of year and Newton Abbot winner Chalk It Down may struggle to defy his penalty, though still has plenty of scope for improvement. Hare In A Round showed promise in a couple of run last year while Arctic Dixie was third on her debut here last month. Indian Stream's run behind Molly's A Diva at Ffos Las in January was a solid effort while a market move for newcomers Wistari Rocks and Notnowivorheadache would be interesting. GERMANY CALLING makes his debut under Rules but came up against a highly-rated gelding in a point-to-point at Ballydurn in March and will know what's required here.
