Verdict

Marju's Quest finished 11 lengths ahead of Henri De Boistron when fourth at Bangor and looks the best of those with experience. But it will be a surprise if at least one of the newcomers doesn't prove too good. Stephen Hero is definitely worth a second look for the in-form Dan Skelton as he won three times on the Flat in Ireland earlier this year for Andy Oliver. RUTHERGLEN also had decent form on the level in the summer, however, winning at Leicester and Windsor. He was also third over 2m at Haydock last month so stamina clearly won't be a problem and John Quinn's gelding can get off the mark over hurdles at the first time of asking. Mandy's Boy was essentially a miler on the Flat and he may need holding up if he's to get home.
