Verdict

The Cambridgeshire National winner Little Bruce makes his seasonal reappearance over hurdles from a reasonably competitive handicap mark. A proven stayer, he could be tough to peg back off the front end assuming that he's fully fit and ready to roll off a 256-day absence. Meanwhile, a recent Ffos Las run should've blown away a few cobwebs for the capable Gangster, and it'll come as no surprise if he takes a significant step forward. However, the most interesting runner is the unbeaten (3-3) handicap debutant BOSS MAN FRED who appears certain to appreciate the switch to a proper galloping track after a recent workmanlike short odds novice win at Southwell.
