Verdict

Hucking Hero has a style of racing that means he needs plenty of luck in running, and a safer option might be METAL MADNESS ahead of Folio. Tony Culhane takes the ride on Mick Quinlan's Acclamation colt. Although no stable star, the four-year-old showed that he is in good form with a recent third over hurdles at Musselburgh and this return to the level could see him back in the winners┬┐ enclosure. He has won off a mark of 65 in the past and racing off 69 today he is unlikely to be far away. River Ardeche put in a much better display last time at Wolverhampton and looks handicapped to win, Folio has to deal with just a 2lb raise for a recent course win but is not badly treated on old form, whilst Rawdon continues to hit the frame without getting his head in front. Man Of Gwent needs watching in the betting as the yard have landed a touch with him before, Just Observing returns from a year and a half on the sidelines and might need the run, whilst Fandango Boy ran well when last seen in December but does still have stamina for this trip to prove. A tricky end for punters, but Metal Madness can win.
