Verdict

Sandown runner-up RANTHAMBORE could make the most of his experience to make it third-time lucky at the main expense of Tim Vaughan's Old Vic mare Midsummer Dream, though the latter should be worth noting for future reference when tackling hurdles. I'm A College Boy ran a little better when fourth at Plumpton last month and could make the frame as the remainder, including newcomer Beaujolais Bob, have little to recommend them.
