Verdict

Lukey Luke won by five lengths at Wetherby on only his second start over fences and has to go on the short-list in a race in which the bottom three are all racing from out of the handicap. On Broadway is tried in blinkers after finishing second over track and trip last month but is proving expensive to follow, as is Stagecoach Jasper. Bollin Fiona could be well handicapped but hasn't shone so far over fences so preference is for CALL IT ON. From a yard in terrific form, the extended distance was a legitimate excuse at Sedgefield last month and he's won his two previous starts at Huntingdon.
