Verdict

HOLLOW BLUE SKY returned from a lengthy absence to score on his chasing bow at Carlisle four weeks ago. If that hasn't taken too much out of him, Nigel Twiston-Davies' charge is capable of going in again off a 7lb higher mark. Whiskey Ridge looked as though he had more to offer when winning very easily over this course and distance in May. He's been bumped up 16lb for that effort but will be staying on here when others have cried enough. Allanard only found one too good at Hexham last month when Ultra Du Chatelet was behind, and likewise Goodtoknow over 2m5f here. Frank The Slink was runner-up at Newcastle last time and Glen Countess is consistent but possibly a couple of pounds too high at present.
