Verdict

Steel City was probably flattered at Huntingdon where his two main rivals departed but he loved the heavy ground and looks certain to be in the shake-up. Smiles For Miles may do better over further and though Springhill Lad produced an encouraging performance on his bumper debut at Fontwell the form hasn't worked out. STROLLAWAYNOW looks the one to be on as he was suited by the longer trip at Lingfield last month when runner-up to Madness Light, who franked the form next time. Winning point-to-pointer and bumper Tullyesker Hill has been very disappointing in his two starts over hurdles.
