Verdict

This does not appear to be the strongest of contests and having been well beaten in sellers over hurdles, the application of blinkers saw Echo Dancer realise a first success over timber in 29 starts. CAP ELORN can take this as he is entitled to have needed his reappearance after an absence and the former Paul Nicholls inmate is with a yard that are more than capable of gleaning improvement from horses that lost form elsewhere. Youm Jamil was backed ahead of a recent event at Southwell, and has been kept ticking over with a couple of runs on the Flat. Crescent Beach showed a degree of ability over hurdles but was sold cheaply out of Jennie Candlish's stable and has been tailed off in two outings over fences so far.
