Verdict

Captain Kelly won a point-to-point last year and was second on his hurdling debut at Fakenham in May. But he'll need to improve to trouble BOYFROMNOWHERE, who was hugely impressive when beating more experienced rivals on his hurdles bow at Uttoxeter and won on heavy ground between the flags. Awaywiththegreys has been quite highly tried since winning at Aintree in June but lacks the scope of some of these while Ballyallia Man will be back over fences shortly. De La Bach returns from a lengthy absence and dual bumper winner Sir Benfro makes his debut over obstacles and may just need the experience.
