Verdict

HINTON INDIANA only came out best in a bunch finish at Cartmel last month but looks to be improving and clearly has plenty of stamina. Dan Skelton's charge can defy a 5lb higher mark and get the better of Market Option, disappointing at Towcester after winning at Uttoxeter. Huntingdon hurdles winner Ilewin For Hannah was tailed off on his only previous try over fences while The Kings Assassin faces larger obstacles for the first time, though can race off his hurdles mark. Queen's Bay still has much to prove over fences.
