Verdict

HIGHLAND LODGE opened his account over hurdles at the first time of asking at Exeter last month. That form stands out in this company and Emma Lavelle's charge can defy a penalty and go in again. Bumper winner Diocles makes his hurdling bow after a decent comeback run at this track, but Grove Pride looks a bigger threat as he's finished second in both starts over timber so far and should be winning soon. Dreamers Of Dreams also showed promise when third at Carlisle recently, but 2009 Grand National hero Mon Mome looks to be having a prep-race for the Welsh National at the end of the month.
