Verdict

Ballybanks has been knocking on the door and his amateur rider takes off 7lb. Gunner Rose was only beaten a neck at Worcester last month and is only 2lb higher here while Or De Grugy is starting to look well handicapped, though it's a while since he's shown any worthwhile form. WORTH A KING'S didn't take to fences last summer but could do better second-time around having won a couple of times over hurdles in May. The soft ground won't be a problem and he shouldn't be far away if his jumping holds up.
