Verdict

There is still a question mark over STEVIE THUNDER's stamina but, lightly-raced over hurdles, Ian Williams' charge could be thrown in here on his handicap debut as he's had another good season on the Flat despite not winning. Turbo Du Ranch is still a maiden over timber so the four-year-old Sporting Boy may be the danger if last week's run at Wincanton has blown away a few cobwebs as Mark Twain is having a confidence-booster before going back over fences and Perfect Reward will also be tackling the larger obstacles again sooner rather than later. Belle De Fontenay usually finds at least a couple too good but is preferred to Piment D'Estruval of the others.
