Verdict

Doyenne Dream pulled off a 50/1 shock in a Towcester maiden hurdle 11 days ago but this is a step up in grade and there is no guarantee that the visor will work a second time. COMMITMENT has been waiting for the better ground and is likely to be ready for this, despite racing for the first time since November. He might be the one to beat on his fourth to Saturday's easy Newton Abbot winner The Rattler Obrien at Wincanton in October. Good Of Luck was in good form prior to his fall at Newbury and Wunfurlez still has scope and is preferred to Stratford second Killegney.
