Verdict

Buckstruther has won seven of his eight start between the flags but his record over regulation fences is a major concern, though he did dead-heat with the useful Amicelli at Hexham points when last seen. At the likely odds, we'll take on the 11-year-old with COCOA KEY who will be all the better for a recent run at Witton Castle where he cut out the running until outpaced. A New Rising should be thereabouts but The Wifes Pet was tailed off here on her reappearance and is best watched again today.
