Verdict

This may help define the seasonal targets for BEDLAM BOY, who was easily the best of these over hurdles, and he will be hard to beat taking to fences. More Equity has done well since joining Peter Monteith and, having made a satisfactory chasing debut here last month, the daughter of Classic Cliche shouldn't be underestimated, while Reindeer Dippin made very good progress last season and, as he has the frame of a chaser, he may well go on to much better things from now on. However, Bedlam Boy just edges the vote judged on the form already in the book. Ferdy Murphy seems to be stepping things up a few notches and this fellow can give the North Yorkshire-based trainer a further confidence booster as the National Hunt competition really starts to warm up.
