Verdict

Lord Grantham was clear of the remainder when just failing to hold off One Lucky Lady in a handicap at Uttoxeter three weeks ago. But he has a penalty to carry here and Richard Johnson, his jockey that day, switches to Groomed who has been chasing but was third in a decent race at Wetherby on Boxing Day when last seen over timber. THIRD OF THE THIRD won a bumper in the autumn and seems to be making progress over hurdles judged on his latest course and distance third. He is just preferred today as Waterford Star may need a longer trip judged on his form on the Flat and debutant Commitment is probably best watched.
