Verdict

Some interesting types clash headed by Spirit Of Shankly. However, he may have too much on his plate conceding weight all round to a host of promising types and the Charlie Longsdon winning machine has inevitably slowed down of late. Classic Move looks just the sort to make a useful novice for the McCain team whilst Up The Ante has a notable absence to overcome since landing an Irish point-to-point in some style. Varom never quite looked like getting to Gone Too Far at Wetherby on his reappearance but he should come on plenty for that outing. The vote goes to URBAN HYMN though who really impressed when never out of second gear in a Huntingdon bumper. Malcolm Jefferson's charge looks just the type to do well over timber and must be noted for the future whatever his fate here on his hurdling debut.
