In depth

Verdict

BUTHELEZI, a very decent sort on the Flat when trained by John Gosden, was impressive on his hurdling debut at Aintree. A penalty here will obviously make life tougher but he should have the class to double his tally over timber. King Of The Wolds was no match for Eduard at Newcastle but Malcolm Jefferson's bumper winner will know more now and looks the type to do well this winter. Lexington Bay, on the other hand, hasn't shown much aptitude for hurdling so far though may not have stayed 2m4f at Musselburgh last time.
