Verdict

ORDER OF THISTLE has done nothing but improve since switching to hurdles company, despite lacking the pace over the minimum distances. He has looked in need of a trip, which he gets here, and that could irk out some extra improvement in him. Whiteoak Fleur needs to be respected on her previous efforts and given the weight allowance she receives, but she must negotiate a bounce back from a tame effort last time while the likes of dual point-to-point winner Toby Maguire may be a dark horse but has to contend with a mammoth lay-off.
