Verdict

This trip can bring HELLORBOSTON's undoubted stamina into play and, though he's likely to do much better when tackling fences, the winning pointer and bumper can get the better of Simarthur, a close second to Billfromthebar over course and distance in October but very disappointing when only fifth at Carlisle subsequently. Romany Ryme is a bit more exposed than his likely market rivals but only found one too good back in novice company over 2m5f here last time and shouldn't be far away again.
