Verdict

TED SPREAD hasn't raced since November but is still unexposed over hurdles and eased considerably in grade here. He's a course and distance winner and, with fitness unlikely to be an issue, may have the class to defy top weight. Ulys Du Charmil should also have more to offer and is from a yard in fine form while Cry of Freedom is tried in a visor after disappointing at Aintree and could figure. Nampour ran poorly at Cheltenham when gambled on last time, however, while Pearls Legend and Urcalin may find this too tough and Rajnagan and Laudatory are both returning from a break.
