Verdict

2009 Cesarewitch winner DARLEY SUN joined Godolphin after that success but hasn't won since. Now with John Ferguson, he's the one to beat if taking to hurdling. Bit Of A Jig never figured in much better company at Newcastle and carries a penalty for his earlier success at Carlisle but Mighty Mobb made a promising debut over timber at Exeter and can figure. Timesishard was outclassed in a Grade 2 race at Warwick but has a shout on his earlier form and it was similar story for Fiddlers Bid, who went close at Ascot before finishing tailed off at Cheltenham last time.
