Verdict

LAUBERHORN is surprisingly dropped into this grade for the first time despite winning a handicap at Huntingdon last week. Evan Williams obviously has his reasons and he should outclass this modest bunch. My Viking Bay won a Towcester seller last May but has barely troubled the judge since and was behind when falling at Chepstow earlier this month while the four-year-old Golden Acorn is a little flattered by recent form figures. Descaro has won four times on the Flat and doesn't appear often over hurdles so may be best of the rest.
