Verdict

Letsby Avenue has only found one too good in his last two starts but was beaten a long way over course and distance last month. Billfromthebar should improve on a recent second at Aintree and probably has more scope and is preferred to Rally The Troops, who has shown promise between the flags and under Rules but has been off the track for a very long time. THE ROAD AHEAD has been making steady progress in bumpers and finally got off the mark at Market Rasen last month. Breeding suggests the longer trip will suit on her hurdling debut so she gets the nod.
