Verdict

Gemini Jim and Nicks Power have both won between the flags but neither make much appeal here. All For Cash and Powerful Ambition have been placed in bumpers and could be interesting, however, while Gallox Bridge will have needed his first experience of hurdling over C&D in April. Boruler has a staying pedigree, as does SCALES but Malcolm Jefferson's gelding is related to two winning hurdlers and won a maiden NH Flat race at Stratford in March - he should be suited to this game.
