Verdict

Nowurhurlin won this a year ago and struggled after his weight rise but has been slowly dropping in the ratings and with his rider's claim taken into consideration is just 1lb higher. He will make a bold attempt complete the long-range double but IMJOEKING looks the one to be on. Lucinda Russell's charge has won a bumper, a point-to-point and a maiden hurdle at Ayr in just five starts and though a bit fortunate when a rival ran out at the second last on his latest start he may have won anyway and looks a very nice prospect. Walser has now finished runner-up three times in succession, all over 2m4f. He could be suited by the shorter trip but is only receiving 1lb from the selection. Lexington Bay showed some potential over this trip at Wetherby but ran poorly at Musselburgh earlier this month.
