Verdict

Forty Thirty has changed hands since winning a couple of modest sellers at Stratford and may be worth opposing in this slightly better grade. Molaise Lad was only second in the lowest grade at Cartmel last month while Cadore has plenty to prove after a woeful effort at the same track, though did win a novice event over C&D last month. ESPORAO won his bumper here in 2010 and was successful over hurdles on fast ground at Downpatrick and Ludlow last year. He's been in action on the Flat since finishing down the field at Punchestown in May and should be good enough to take this. Fast Exit may still have some scope but is still a maiden and faces a stiff task at the weights today.
