Verdict

LORD WISHES may be good enough to score despite having his first start since March. He won both starts in bumpers earlier this year and the half-brother to decent winning hurdler and chaser William's Wishes should take to the obstacles. However, Valleyofmilan will be no pushover as he's gone close in both starts over timber and will be winning sooner rather than later while both Aye Well and Oscar O'Scar posted good efforts last time and are open to further progress. Harry The Lemmon was placed in a point-to-point in April and is another to note on his debut under Rules.
