Verdict

Free As A Lark was bought out of Chris Wall's stable after a seller at Redcar last month and now makes her first start and hurdling debut for Evan Williams but she will need to be useful over timber to get the better of AL DAFA. Gordon Elliott's gelding was good value for his win at Perth last month, has run on the flat since and he looks worth backing for his in-form stable back over timber. Tim Vaughan's Frameit has shown gradual improvement in his four starts over hurdles but may struggle under the penalty for his win at Uttoxeter recently. Peter Bowen's Sansili has shown a consistent level of form and should be thereabouts again but Al Dafa looks the one to beat.
