Verdict

Quattrocento is a previous C&D winner and is blinkered for the first time here, as is recent Newbury fourth Frontier Dancer. Bellflower Boy returned from a short break with an excellent third over hurdles at Doncaster and is rated 12lb lower over fences. His form over the larger obstacles has been disappointing to say the least, however, while Postmaster and Or Bleu usually find at least one too good. Isn't That Lucky won over this trip at Ludlow earlier in the month and is one to consider and Acrai Rua still has a bit of scope but this can go to LAKE LEGEND, who won at Taunton last month and is almost certainly a lot better than he showed when beaten at odds-on in a muddling three-runner novice event at Doncaster two weeks ago.
