Verdict

VALLEYOFMILAN makes most appeal in this. A runner-up at Uttoxeter in June, the winner has since gone in again and subsequent four-time winner Bobowen was well beaten in third. Donald McCain's charge is just preferred to Barrakilla who was having his first start for nearly a year when going close on his hurdling bow at Worcester last month but Reaction will find this tougher having only landed a seller at Stratford recently. Mr Watson finished third in a Fairyhouse bumper in April and is worth noting on his first start for Jonjo O'Neill while Milan Royale is a newcomer to keep an eye on in the betting.
