Verdict

RALLY THE TROOPS was disappointing at Uttoxeter but having been off the course for almost two years before that reappearance, we'll take him to confirm some of the promise that he showed in a Wincanton bumper. God's County is tried in headgear having struggled at Hexham. A four-time winner on the Flat, he has placed on six of his hurdling starts so far. Billfromthebar won a Sedgefield bumper in May and is stepped up in trip having disappointed in two subsequent runs over hurdles. Prime Location gets his first experience of racing on fast ground while Rockingtimes was the subject of market confidence ahead of his debut under Rules for Henry Oliver, and could be capable of improving upon that modest performance.
