Verdict

DUNLOUGH BAY won with any amount in hand at Lingfield earlier this month and despite a penalty is fancied to follow-up in this. Young Hurricane should make a race of it as he avoids a penalty for winning a conditionals race at Fontwell on his hurdling debut while bumper winners Wychwoods Brook and Squire Trelawney could also figure if taking to the obstacles. Placed in point-to-points, Dungeel and Malapie are worth noting on their debuts under Rules while Quadrato is another to consider on his first start over timber.
