Things clearly haven't turned out as anticipated for Temple Lord and while he clearly has his own ideas about the game, the handicapper has given Jonjo O'Neill's charge a chance off his current mark. Paul Nicholls looks to be bringing a few of his better horses out at this stage of the season, and POLISKY is taken to score. A useful hurdler on his day, he is yet to oblige over the larger obstacles but today's trip and going suit. Victor Leudorum did finish ahead of our selection when they met at Ascot. He returns from a brief absence having disappointed at Ludlow and is 3lb worse off on this occasion. Manger Hanagment has ordinarily produced his better efforts at this time of year while Adrenalin Flight is respected having appreciated a step up in trip at Worcester.
