Verdict

Boogie In The Barn followed up his win in a Plumpton bumper by scoring over hurdles at Kempton over today's distance. The second that day has franked the form since so Jeremy Scott's charge looks a danger to all. Pink Gin might be improving and probably came up against a decent novice at Warwick last week having beaten a subsequent winner at Towcester earlier. It's safe to assume that BIG HANDS HARRY is Nicky Henderson's first choice and the winning pointer wouldn't need to improve much on his second to stablemate Royal Boy at Ascot to go one better here. Foxtail Hill should be suited by the switch to hurdles and Ziga Boy has already won over fences in France and also catches the eye.
