Verdict

A low key finale in which those at the head of the weights are expected to dominate. A Little Bit Dusty was only second in a claimer here on Sunday but the faster ground should help and he won't be far away. VOLTCHESKO started favourite on his handicap debut at Lingfield last month but was beaten four lengths by Proud Times. The winner dotted up under a penalty at Uttoxeter last week, however, so that was probably a decent effort and compensation awaits here. Captain Sharpe will handle the ground but it's a long time since he's even gone close to winning over hurdles. Rigid is preferred to stable companion Vertueux of the others.
