Verdict

Time For Spring often travels strongly in his races, as he did at Taunton earlier this month, but rarely finds much when push comes to shove. Carlisle scorer Acrai Rua is suited by extreme distances while Everaard tends to reserve his best for Musselburgh but Blazing Bull arrives in terrific form and has won twice over these fences recently to add to his victory at Catterick. TWIRLING MAGNET was having just his third start over fences and his eighth in total when beating Savant Bleu at Newbury at the start of last month. There is more to come from Jonjo O'Neill's charge, who can confirm the form with the runner-up who has disappointed since.
