Verdict

HOUSTON DYNIMO is no slouch on the Flat or over fences. He's also won twice over hurdles and, rated 12lb higher over the larger obstacles, may have too much class for these despite conceding weight all round. Kelso third Born To Shine may be the danger as he's lightly raced, though Granaruid was placed at Cartmel last month and also has a decent amateur on board. Glasson Lad will appreciate the drop back in trip but is a long-standing maiden and none of the others make much appeal on recent form.
