Verdict

Emma Lavelle's stable is just struggling for winners at present and her Shotgun Paddy would need to improve on his defeat of Sin Bin at Chepstow to follow up under a penalty here. Two Rockers won a point-to-point by eight lengths at Largy in April and, being by Milan, shouldn't be fazed by the switch to hurdles while Timesishard was second on his hurdling debut at Market Rasen and will know more today. THOMAS CRAPPER sets a decent standard on his victory at Worcester and subsequent third at Cheltenham. He should pick up the winning thread again here.
