Verdict

BIT OF A JIG is yet another Donald McCain novice off the point-to-point conveyor belt. The Cholmondeley handler has enjoyed a terrific strike rate with similar types in this sort of race and the five-year-old can add to the tally. Everylasting has won between the flags, though in modest company, while The Ferick landed a Market Rasen bumper in June but has disappointed since. Little Glenshee was second at Perth in April over hurdles but her overall form suggests connections will struggle to find a race for her.
