Verdict

Lady Bluesky was placed a couple of times on the Flat in October and is one for the short-list in this. Flaygray won easily over a slightly longer trip here last time and appears on the upgrade, while Strong Knight has been placed twice on the level since finishing third at Wetherby in October. Surprise Vendor and Freddie Brown return from a break but Beidh Tine Anseo is eased in grade after finishing fourth at Musselburgh and Scriptwriter will have needed his run at Wetherby. WILLIE HALL will be a lot happier back over hurdles and has plenty in his favour today. He should be thereabouts at decent odds.
