Verdict

THOMAS WILD has learnt his trade in bumpers and novice hurdles and makes his handicap bow here off a fair mark. He needs to improve on what he has achieved to date but showed he was going the right way last time with a good effort at Chepstow and gets the vote. Kasban shoulders topweight but will find life easier here after competing in better company the last twice. Trip and ground will suit and he should go well, whilst the consistent veteran Heir To Be and reliable Teenage Kicks are also respected. Matako is useful but hard to predict.
