Verdict

Dark Spirit is lightly raced over hurdles while Bin End is capable of running well fresh and Shabak Hom has been knocking on the door lately. Dark Oasis also has a chance on his best form but it's difficult to make a case for Tamarillo Grove under top weight and Adiynara also faces a stiff task on these terms. Schumpters Lad is very inconsistent nowadays but Encompassing produced a better effort at Hereford last month and could play a part. CRAZY BOLD hasn't won for a couple of years but is well treated as a result and this should be within his capabilities. He gets a tentative vote.
