Verdict

BELLFLOWER BOY has been in poor form over fences but is rated much higher over hurdles. He'll handle the ground and the booking of AP McCoy suggests a return to form is expected. Arrayan is another who should appreciate the return to hurdling though both Oscar Gogo and Worcester winner Red Jade have the beating of him on today's terms. It's difficult to make a serious case for any of the remainder with Revaader perhaps proving best of them.
