Verdict

TISTORY has won bumpers in this country and in France and was sent off favourite for a Listed contest at Aintree last month. He looked as though he needed the run that day and could be an exciting prospect over hurdles so gets the nod receiving 7lb from Oyster Shell, who was struggling to get off the mark before beating similarly exposed rivals in a maiden hurdle at Uttoxeter earlier this month. Never Says Never and Midnight Thomas have also hinted at ability in bumpers but have been off the track for a few months.
