Verdict

SEA LORD easily got off the mark at Southwell last time and, though that form hasn't worked out, still has plenty of untapped potential and should be good enough to defy his penalty. Bumper winner Broughtons Star appears the pick of Willie Musson's three runners but a number of the others having winning form on the Flat including Spirit Of Xaar, The Wonga Coup, Nelson's Bay and hurdling newcomer Son Vida. Flashy Star was second in a maiden hurdle at Worcester last month and should strip fitter here but may need further.
