Verdict

Mister Nibbles won a bumper here in April and is expected to run well on his hurdling debut. Likewise Avidity while Orchard Road was only beaten two lengths at Kelso last month. Knightly Escapade came up against a smart prospect when beaten 11 lengths at Carlisle last time and is improving with experience but GETABUZZ was a fair stayer on the Flat and made a promising start over timber at Aintree, where he still held every chance two out. That will have taught him plenty and he could be ready to open his account now. Kiwayu makes his hurdles bow but was another useful performer on the level.
