Verdict

MONDLICHT (NAP) won two out of two on the Fibresand in the spring and the presence of A P McCoy in the saddle on his hurdling debut is a positive sign - he can make a winning start. Classic Colori won on the Flat at Doncaster last month and followed up with a second over timber at Worcester. He may be the danger as it's difficult to know what to make of Camachoice's 17-length second at Uttoxeter. Miss Fortywinks has twice finished second in handicaps here this summer but is starting to look exposed.
