Verdict

Up To Something is one of several Charlie Longsdon runners to have travelled up from Lambourn. He doesn't face an easy task on his chasing bow however. Star In Flight also tackles fences for the first time, as does Simply Ned. Front-runner Jet Master fell here on his only previous try over the larger obstacles but winning hurdler Outrageous Request doesn't look badly treated unlike Bygones Of Brid, who was well beaten when favourite at Cartmel in July. SWALEDALE LAD came up a against couple of decent novices at Worcester last time and wasn't disgraced. He looks to be improving with experience and gets the nod here ahead of Hexham third Twentypoundluck, though Toledo Gold could be interesting if recapturing his best.
