Verdict

Bar De Ligne won over a shorter trip here during the summer and Green Wizard scored over a longer distance at Wetherby in May. Both were beaten on their recent comebacks and Dursey Sound makes more appeal. The latter made a winning start to his chasing career with a victory at Bangor last month and should go close again, but it could pay to stick with MULDOON'S PICNIC in this. Kim Bailey's progressive charge defied a 10lb rise to land hat-trick when successful at Huntingdon and looks best followed until beaten. Gullinbursti has shown ability over fences without yet winning and looks best of those returning to action.
