Verdict

FOUNTAINS FLYPAST has won two of his three starts in bumpers including on his first start of the season when he looked much improved for the application of a tongue tie at Fontwell and with more likely he can follow up. Ballagio was progressive in two bumpers last term and can improve for the longer trip here while Kingsmere is a winning pointer who turns out for a yard who have done well with similar types in the past. Alan King has saddled a number of winners at the start of this campaign so his Mister Chancer can go well first time back but Fountains Flypast is fit and on form.
