Verdict

A disappointing finale in which few make any appeal. Himrayn has won twice over fences but is still a maiden over hurdles and 3lb higher than when second over course and distance last time. THE NEPHEW is tried in a visor after disappointing at Ffos Las. If it encourages him to reproduce an earlier run at Bangor, he could be the one to beat. Dalrymple is still 3lb higher than his last winning mark two years ago but may be the pick of the remainder ahead of Sedgemoor Express.
