Verdict

A few of these come into the race at the top of their game, including the hat-trick seeking Lady Bluesky and Fujin Dancer, who has struck up a good understanding with Harriet Bethell. Circus Clown, Grand Diamond and Willie Hall boast consistent form at a slightly lower level, while veteran Culcabock has dropped to a decent mark and was just caught at Newcastle last month. It would be no surprise to see top weight Sure Josie Sure in the firing-line under the promising Conor O'Farrell and Kaolak will enjoy the good ground and flat track but there is surely more to come from REMEMBER NOW. Nicky Henderson's half-brother to champion hurdler Binocular has been put up 6lb for a narrow win at Stratford but that was only his fourth start over timber and he has more scope than today's rivals.
