Verdict

HANNIBAL THE GREAT won by 12 lengths at Fontwell last month and the runner-up was only beaten a short-head at Ffos Las earlier this week. Charlie Longsdon's charge sets a very decent standard here and may be good enough to defy a penalty against less-exposed types. Full Throttle couldn't justify favouritism in a Uttoxeter bumper in June but there are possibilities about point-to-point winner Sego Success and Paladin was once part of the Godolphin set-up. Yabadabadoo is the type to improve with experience and looks best of the rest.
