Verdict

There isn't a great deal between any of the four with previous form in bumpers, though Dare To Endeavour was very disappointing when last seen at Uttoxeter last June. INTERNATIONALAPEAL has an interesting pedigree and has already finished second in a point-to-point at Dromohane. The third, De Blacksmith, has already won twice over hurdles this season so the form has a solid look about it and Rebecca Curtis' five-year-old will know what's required here. He's preferred to newcomers Duke's Affair and Shadow Cruise.
