Verdict

Aston Lad has the highest rating of the seven runners that go to post for this selling hurdle but Sarah Humphery's gelding is hard to back with any confidence and a better bet looks to be EARLSFIELD RAIDER, who gets the vote ahead of Cavalry Twill. Jimmy Frost's gelding has gone well in sellers in recent starts, including when a close third behind Tabaran at Stratford on his reappearance last month, and he has to be respected. Rare Article makes his debut for Tim Vaughan this afternoon and may do better for the switch in stable, while Compton Star needs to improve on recent disappointing efforts in handicaps to play a hand in the finish. Gary Moore's Alrafid was good value for his win over course and distance in a seller in April and has every chance if able to reproduce a similar level of form today but he has been below par of late and a better bet looks to be Earlsfield Raider. Caroline Bailey's gelding has run to a reasonable level of form in two starts this term and he has an obvious chance in this grade.
