Verdict

Not much form to go on here so Uttoxeter bumper winner Heronshaw must go on the short-list on his hurdles bow. Walcot Lathyrus has won six times between the flags but was pulled up on his only previous start under Rules while another ex-pointer, Glenwood Prince, never figured on his hurdling debut at Wincanton earlier this month. THUNDERCRACK showed a bit of promise on his belated racecourse debut at Carlisle last month and will have learned from the experience. He gets the nod here as there's no guarantee that Umoristic will stay this longer trip and Arch Event is only modest.
