Verdict

Acey showed a decent level of form in five starts in bumpers in Ireland and has to be considered on his hurdling debut and first start for the in-form yard of Nigel Twiston-Davies but he will need to be useful to get the better of AITEEN THIRTYTHREE. The Paul Nicholls-trained gelding showed progressive form without winning over hurdles last term, earning a rating of 130, and he can make a winning reappearance over a trip that suits. Majestic Mayhem and Supercede have a bit to find with the selection and of more interest may be Tim Vaughan's Pure Anticipation, who created a favourable impression when winning at Fontwell in June. Run With The Wind could be anything have won her only start in a point in Ireland but Aiteen Thirtythree looks the one to beat.
