Verdict

CAPPA BLEU has had just the two previous outings over hurdles. Rated 15lb higher over fences, Evan Williams looks to have found him a good opportunity to get his head back in front. Bumper winner Squeeze Me was still in contention when falling a couple of hurdles from home at Uttoxeter and and has every chance with a clear round, while Kayf Moss and Walk On Al will likely improve from modest debut efforts over timber. Gorsky Island ran well in a bumper last month and the half-brother to prolific hurdles winner Banjaxed Girl is one to note.
