Verdict

KUDU COUNTRY has a penalty to carry for his chasing debut victory at Carlisle, but looks the one to beat nonetheless. He found only the progressive Frascati Park too good back at the same track last time and neither of today's rivals look up to that level. Bunclody scored in heavy ground over hurdles early this year and is making his chasing debut on his first start since April, while Lady Willa looks to have plenty to find having finished a well beaten second on her first start over fences at Warwick earlier this month.
