Verdict

Fintan has a penalty to carry for last month's victory at Worcester but still appears to be heading in the right direction and makes more appeal than Theredballoon, who has had a break since scoring at Uttoxeter in May though the second that day, American Spin, won easily at Fontwell earlier this week. Jeremy Scott's stable is going well so Bowntobebad, third in a Wincanton bumper a year ago, has to be considered but VALLEY LAD may be the one to beat. From the same family as smart hurdler Mole Board, Tim Vaughan's five-year-old should thrive now faced with a set of obstacles and is started off at a realistic level.
