Verdict

Act Four was a beaten favourite when fifth at Sandown on Friday and is unlikely yo make the line-up but Daylan hails from a yard with an excellent record in bumpers and should give a good account while it will be interesting to see if there is any market support for Jim Best's mare Generous June. The one to beat, however, may be VOLT FACE. He cost current connections £58,000 and is a half-brother to three winners in France and also closely related to recent Grade 2 hurdle runner-up Vasco De Ronceray.
