Verdict

Finellas Fortune's second at Hexham last month is the best hurdling form on offer in this but that was nothing to write home about and it will be a surprise if she doesn't find a least a couple too good here. Several of these showed decent form in bumpers, including Glenora Gale who won at Hexham in June before finishing second under a penalty at Uttoxeter. Cue To Cue disappointed when odds-on at Huntingdon in March, however, so the vote goes to SKENAKILLA CROSS. She's relatively unexposed and her run over 2m at Towcester in April suggests she'll relish the extra here. Thirty Days Out also looks to have plenty of stamina and is preferred to Sparkling Hand of the others.
