Verdict

Jonjo O'Neill sets a poser here with three entries. McCoy rides Foundation Man, who was well backed when second in a couple of bumpers at Warwick and Southwell last season and should make his mark over hurdles. Music Pick was third in a bumper here in May but the interesting one could be CHOSEN DREAM. He arrives with a healthy reputation from the point-to-point field and Barry Geraghty is a significant jockey booking. Smadynium went close a couple of times in bumpers and it will be a surprise if he's not placed to good effect over the next few months but Talkin Thomas, a winner at Newcastle in March, may struggle to give the weight away on his return and Barrakilla may need more time. Thomas Crapper has already had plenty of chances.
