Verdict

All four of Lord Lescribaa's victories have come here but he's now on a career-high mark. My Mate Vinnie looks a better bet being 4lb better off with Basil Fawlty for a head defeat at Worcester in June, though Terfel's Toscar shouldn't be far away having won at Perth in June. He won over this trip over hurdles here last year. BALLYVESEY should strip fitter for last month's run at Uttoxeter and is starting to look very well treated. He usually competes at a much higher level and can land this if retaining a fraction of his former ability.
