Verdict

David Pipe unleashes winning pointers Rathlin Rose and Skylander under Rules. The former has more scope but will benefit from facing a set of hurdles and a longer trip. ARABIC HISTORY is a half-brother to a six-times Flat winner so should have the pace for this and John Ferguson's record in bumpers in enviable. He should be able to beat the returning Upsanddowns in receipt of 8lb. Lucky Gal has run a couple of fair races at Worcester but looks nothing special.
