Verdict

We'll take the view that PURPLE BAY needed his comeback run at Huntingdon when odds-on. He finished well ahead of Doctor Harper in the Champion Bumper at Cheltenham in March and should confirm that form as the pair makes their first appearance over hurdles. Dakar Run was just behind the selection at Aintree in April but could only manage third on his hurdles bow at Uttoxeter and will need more here. Duke's Affair and Mrs Jordan had decent form in bumpers while Flat winner Memory Cloth will love the ground but whether he'll stay this far is anybody's guess. Sash Of Honour looks best of the rest.
