Verdict

Fair Trade was odds-on when unseating his rider at Wetherby last time but should be winning again soon judged on his earlier form in decent company. But he has to give 7lb to BLACK SPIRIT, a smart performer on the Flat. The fact that the latter made his hurdling debut in a Grade 2 suggests connections think he's capable of picking up some nice prize money once he gains experience and he gets the nod. Seventh Sky is back in novice company after a good run in a Sandown handicap and can't be ignored while Deia Sunrise was in front and looking the likely winner when falling at the last at Ludlow and is also worthy of consideration.
