Verdict

Hellorboston was biting off more than he could chew in the Champion Bumper at Cheltenham but he'll be happier in this smaller field on heavier ground and it would be no surprise to see him make all. However, we're prepared to give another chance to FINE RIGHTLY. He was beaten by Island Confusion over course and distance in February but is 7lb better off today and has also gained a little more experience. Pure Science was sixth in the Champion Bumper and must have a chance on that form, though the going here might be a problem for the Flat-bred five-year-old. Dubai Kiss has more to do than when successful at Newbury but has scope, as does Doncaster fourth Regal Diamond.
