Verdict

A very wide open contest this but a chance is taken on hurdles debutant THYME HILL for Philip Hobbs and Richard Johnson. Last year's Champion Bumper looked a really strong contest and his third to Envoi Allen marks him out as a horse of serious ability. The Hobbs team could have found many easier races than this to start out so he presumably has impressed in his schooling. Fellow hurdles debutant Fiddlerontheroof is a bright prospect and he is preferred to Champagne Well who ran creditably behind Champ when last seen at the Aintree Grand National meeting.
