Verdict

A few of these look quite closely matched. Willoughby Hedge won over the trip at Wetherby in May but that means he carries a penalty. Keltic Rhythm keeps finding one too good but Uttoxeter conqueror Carlton Jack has won again since and Neil King's charge is preferred to Kyles Faith, who made no impression when dropped into a seller at Stratford last time. PATSYS CASTLE got outpaced over 2m4f at Huntingdon on his hurdling debut but is sure to improve over this trip having already scored between the flags. He looks the one to beat, though Golden Calf is also a winning pointer with a bit of scope.
