Verdict

Knight In Purple isn't easy to catch right nowadays but certainly has the ability to figure in this if in the mood. Agent Archie lost his way in the spring, however, and has a bit to prove on his comeback while Adelar also lacks a recent run. Al Co needs further and will probably be back over fences sooner rather than later so this looks a good opportunity for DUMBARTON to make a successful return to hurdling having been in good form on the Flat lately. He showed decent form for Gordon Elliott over timber in the autumn. Scoglio finished behind Knight In Purple at Uttoxeter in June and may struggle to reverse that form here.
