Verdict

Several interesting contenders are due to face the starter here including Rev It Up, who stayed on strongly to score over this trip at Chepstow last month. He won't find this easy under a penalty, however, as Knighton Combe has plenty of experience and won a Listed handicap over fences at Uttoxeter when last seen in June. Ardkilly Gunner beat Mountainous in a point-to-point at Dromahane a year ago and his C&D second to the race-fit Miss Kalifa earlier this month was a decent first effort over timber. He should beat his old rival again but we'll take a chance on the fitness of HERDSMAN, whose run behind Tornado Bob at Uttoxeter last season worked out well - he should win plenty of races this season.
