Verdict

TIPTOEAWAY looked in need of the outing on his reappearance at Wetherby and ran accordingly. But there wasn't a lot wrong with his jumping and he stayed on nicely up the straight once getting his second wind. A first victory over the larger obstacles should be forthcoming here. Trucking Along has won a point-to-point and scored over hurdles at Ayr in March. He should be placed to good effect this term and makes more appeal than another former pointer, Saddle Pack, while Chester Ridge returns from a year on the sidelines. Front Of House won twice over timber last season and was held in high regard earlier in his career but is jumping fences late in life.
