Verdict

Alan King must be wondering what he has to do to get a race out of Suburban Bay but this is another big chance for his charge, who has only found one too good at Kempton and Bangor recently. LONG WAVE was found wanting when favourite at Southwell last time but this is an easier course and an easier grade and he may last longer today. Charlie Longsdon's six-year-old is preferred to Riddlestown, who was beaten when falling at Fakenham last month. Divine Folly has won a bumper and a hurdle but makes his chasing bow here.
