Verdict

Bravo Bravo is upped in the weights and in class after scoring at Chepstow recently so a chance is taken on FLYING VIC. The latter posted his best effort yet over timber when runner-up on his reappearance at Exeter last month and make more appeal than Billy No Name and Al Alfa. Raduis Bleu has the best hurdling form but is returning from a lengthy absence and chase winner Ratify has been off the track for over a year. Lord Landen showed some promise back in 2010 but never got involved on his recent comeback at Southwell.
