Verdict

PYJAMA GAME seems to be getting the hang of jumping fences and the Sedgefield winner will be staying on here when others have cried enough. Rose Dobbin's seven-year-old is preferred to the returning The Friary and Badger Foot while Flying Doctor is better over hurdles. Baltic Pathfinder did finish ahead of Apache Blue at Sedgefield last month but both finished tailed off and Forestside has still to ecapture his best form since joining Barry Murtagh.
