Some powerful yards are represented in this bumper and the form may be worth following. Foggy's Wall has the edge in experience over several of his rivals and found only Until Winning too good at Taunton in February, though Moneymix and Pete The Pastor have also shown signs of ability and Spanish Arch has won a point-to-point. Donald McCain's SEPARATE SHADOWS is a half-brother to three winners on the Flat and may just have more speed than his rivals. He is taken to make a winning debut though Old Pals Act and Sandanski are well worth noting for future reference. Charles Onze and Presenting William may do better when faced with a set of obstacles.
