Verdict

HUMPHREY BEE is lightly raced for his age and ran well for a long way behind Seebright in a better race over course and distance last month. A repeat of that effort would give him every chance today and he's preferred to the frustrating Gentle Bob and Killeenmore, who won over hurdles earlier in his career but looks very one-paced nowadays. Wild Geese is only 4lb higher than when winning this 12 months ago and can't be ruled out as he didn't stay the longer trip here last month.
