Verdict

Flicka Williams was raised a harsh-looking 8lb for finishing second at Uttoxeter and Pateese has climbed the weights this season, though will be hard to keep out of the frame again with a 7lb claimer on board. Kilmurvy has been threatening to get his head back in front while Virginia Ash ground out a victory at Plumpton last month, though had earlier finished behind Moorlands Mist and Brackloon High over this trip at Chepstow. ANDY KELLY was having just his fourth start over hurdles when only beaten a neck at Ascot. He has the beating of Kilmurvy on that run and can get back to winning ways today. Rydon Pynes is lightly-raced and may be a danger to the selection but Upswing and Scholastica try 3m for the first time.
