Verdict

Handy Andy came good at Newbury in March and Miss Milborne proved a consistent sort in her first season over hurdles and will have no problems with the soft ground. Carrigmorna King is lightly raced and had probably gone over the top when falling at Newton Abbot in April. A much better showing is expected here but Silver Gypsy gets little respite from the handicapper and Salontyre also looks too high in the weights. Dark And Dangerous and Loose Chips could figure while Red Hot Poker has been knocking on the door this summer and Kitegen won at Bangor in August. ULIS DE VASSY had to work hard to get off the mark on heavy ground at Bangor at the end of last year but that form has worked out really well with three of the next five home winning since. Fourth Kian's Delight was second in a Listed handicap at Market Rasen in July off a mark of 124 which suggests Nick Williams' four-year-old is well treated here off 112.
