Verdict

Rupert Bear may well have headed the short-list in this had he not been pulled up at Wetherby. Kelso third Ballybroe needs to improve again, however, while Pete is starting to look a light of former days and Young Sparky and The Ferick are returning from a break and were on a downward spiral before that. UPSWING has only had two starts over hurdles and hasn't been disgraced in either. It would be no surprise were he to prove much more progressive than these.
