Verdict

Up To Something was flattered by his proximity to Puffin Billy in a Grade 2 at Ascot last time but should still make his presence felt stepping back up in trip here. Barney Cool has shown definite signs of ability, as has Liberty Court, while Le Reve has been highly tried so far and was last seen finishing fifth in the Grade 1 Tolworth Hurdle at Sandown. Wake Your Dreams has already been placed at Bangor and Leicester and should be thereabouts if staying the extra but POPULATION could complete a quick double for trainer and jockey. A very useful bumper last season his Huntingdon conqueror, My Tent Or Yours, is held in high regard and a previous winner was back in third that day. Desgrey may be best of the rest.
