Verdict

HELLORBOSTON seems to be gradually getting his act together over timber judged on his latest second to Simarthur over 3m at Hexham. This looks a good opportunity for Donald McCain's charge, who ran in the Champion Bumper at Cheltenham last year, to open his account over timber. Blueside Boy hasn't been seen since finishing fourth in this race 12 months ago but Masterleaderman was third on his reappearance at Musselburgh and Lord Usher may do better now tackling hurdles.
