Verdict

Lupita was always struggling when last of four at Newton Abbot on Sunday, while Chepstow third Arctic Flow races from 8lb out of the handicap. Normally is visored after disappointing at Ffos Las but the form of his stable is a major concern while Mercury Bay and On The Bridge return from an absence. Chasing debutant Thomas Wild could be interesting having finished third over hurdles on his reappearance at Wincanton, but HOW'S MY FRIEND has been quite highly tried over fences so far and Grant Cann's seven-year-old is taken to make the most of this drop in class.
