Verdict

Agricultural has been placed in a similar grade in his last three starts and should be thereabouts again. Ballymoat was only beaten a length-and-a-half at Fontwell on his chasing debut and is another with claims but CLOUDY JOKER is very interesting now his attention is switched to fences. Beaten less than a length over hurdles at Sedgefield last month, he jumped well when he won a point-to-point in Ireland in April and is starting at a lowly level. Teo Vivo may also make a better chaser than hurdler but might need this.
