Verdict

It took a while for POWERFUL AMBITION to get off the mark over hurdles but he's always looked a chaser in the making and gets his chance to make an immediate impact over the larger obstacles off a decent mark in this. My Mate Vinnie won at Towcester in May and looked to be coming back to form at Newton Abbot last month but Susquehanna River has gone up 6lb for winning in a lesser grade at Wetherby and will need to improve. Matrow's Lady won twice over hurdles last season but rather lost her way in the spring and may need this while Abbey Storm jumped poorly and was pulled up at Worcester last month.
