Verdict

Hills Of Aran showed himself to be no back number with a recent success over hurdles but Keith Goldsworthy's veteran may just be vulnerable to younger legs and LOST GLORY has plenty to like about him. A winner at Uttoxeter on a softer surface, he won a couple of staying events over hurdles and fences last season, and he still looks to be progressive at this stage. Charming Lad bombed out badly at Ffos Las and Charlie Mann has elected to dispense with the tongue strap from the Fontwell winner. A switch to Nigel Twiston-Davies' yard has worked the oracle for Stormhoek though he does have a bit to find in order to be competitive at this level. Templer has dropped significantly in the weights and Richard Johnson should know all about him having been aboard on four of his previous victories.
