Verdict

Cheltenham's Champion Bumper winner RELEGATE is sure to prove popular here and the mare appears to have very strong credentials for a winning start over timber. She is hard to oppose. Naas bumper winner The Big Dog is an interesting rival while better can be expected from Satoshi having joined Gordon Elliott over the summer. Cuneo runs for the first time on a decent surface and is another with scope for better things.
