Verdict

NO LOOSE CHANGE has won three times over fences but has only had three starts over hurdles. He was placed in two of those runs against much better opposition than this and should have few problems opening his account over the smaller obstacles today. King Boru, fourth over this trip at Fontwell in May, could be the one for forecast-backers as Just Archie doesn't appear to be improving and Miss Mayfair likewise. Phantom Ranch won over 2m on the Flat a year ago but that's looking increasingly like a fluke.
