Verdict

CHELTENHAM DE VAIGE shaped as if this extra furlong would suit when finishing second last time and he can break his maiden at the 13th time of asking in this competitive handicap hurdle. The selection has the ground to suit here and he can see off Pershing Missile who finished placed on heavy ground last time and is making his first appearance in handicap company here. Bishop Of Bling showed ability in novice hurdles last season and he can take third on his first outing since joining Alastair Ralph.
  1. Cheltenam De Vaige
  2. Pershing Missile
  3. Bishop Of Bling
