Verdict

SIMPLY NED looks a cut above these. He went close to following up an earlier win at Ayr when second at Haydock last month and Nicky Richards' charge will take the beating with a similar effort. Doynosaur's latest fourth over hurdles to Zaplamation reads well enough but she never figured on her chasing bow at Hexham before that. Supreme Asset was also beaten at Wetherby on his first start over fences but much better is expected from the dual hurdles winner with that experience under his belt, while Diamond D'amour scored over timber at Carlisle when last seen at the track but that was back in March last year and he may be best watched here.
