Verdict

Drumlang has been raised a couple of pounds since finishing third at Uttoxeter, which seems harsh, but Julie Prince in entitled to be thereabouts again off his current mark and Shalamiyr has been in good form at Worcester of late. VERTUEUX only managed one win in 19 starts over hurdles but has won twice on the Flat recently and didn't run badly back over obstacles here last time. The grey looks nicely treated if his jumping holds up and he gets a tentative vote as Think Its All Over, another Flat winner, may need this run.
