Verdict

Plenty try their luck but this can probably be whittled down to just a handful. Gulshanigans looks an obvious enough starting point after a good effort over C&D last time out and he really should be taking some prize money home, but TEDHAM ran a stormer against one that went on to finish second in the classy Challow Hurdle, and that form looks very solid indeed. He can get off the mark .Dark Episode looked a thorough stayer at Leicester and will appreciate this test, and the likes of Bhutan, Magoo and Wallace Spirit all warrant a second look, coming as they do from big yards.
  1. Tedham
  2. Gulshanigans
  3. Dark Episode
