In depth

Verdict

Key To The West only found The Italian Yob too good on his hurdling debut on heavy ground at Exeter and seems sure to be in the shake-up again. But SHUTTHEFRONTDOOR's first run over obstacles at Folkestone was too bad to be true considering he won all three of his starts in bumpers, including a Listed contest at Newbury in February. It will be a huge disappointment if Jonjo O'Neill's highly-rated gelding doesn't make amends here. The yard also run Josies Orders but he's not built on a second at Haydock in October while Mirific has had plenty of chances. Newcomer Bright Abbey has won twice on the Flat and looks best of the rest.
