Verdict

August's C&D winner Reve De Nuit sets a fair standard but is by no means bombproof under a penalty. Rysbrack won a Worcester bumper on his racecourse debut in June last year and has been placed twice on the Flat recently though Paul Webber also runs Deceptive, who'd been well backed prior to unseating his rider at the first at Worcester in August. Dubai Glory has only found one too good in her two starts over hurdles but we'll take a chance on the fitness of BAB AL SALAM. A winner five times on the Flat for Godolphin, he'll bounce off this quick ground and may well prove in a different league to these if taking to hurdles.
