Verdict

Ambion Wood and Violin Davis are the best of these over hurdles but both make their chasing debut today. So does BUDDY BOLERO as he returns from over a year off the track. He won easily over hurdles at Folkestone on his latest start and a chance is taken the brother to decent chaser Finger Onthe Pulse is good enough on his fencing debut. Off The Ground made a promising start over fences at Plumpton and Theatrical Star ran well at Ascot before disappointing at Taunton last time.
