Verdict

Winning pointer and bumper Harry's Farewell made a promising start over hurdles at Fontwell and the extra half-mile is a plus. Chepstow third Minella On Line also promises more now upped in trip and makes more appeal than Bangor second Spencer Lea and Paul Henderson's pair Back In June and Garde Fou. CLOSING CEREMONY was beaten 15 lengths when third at Ffos Las last time but was only beaten two lengths by the useful Kaki De La Pree at Chepstow earlier and a repeat of that effort would probably suffice here.
