Looking Hopeful has shown ability in bumper company but doesn't look a leading light of the Henderson team at present. He'll have his work cut out on his hurdling debut dealing with TURN OVER SIVOLA, a course winner here last May and only just run out of things on his Taunton seasonal reappearance when travelling like the best horse throughout the race. He sets a solid standard and is the one to beat. Good Boy Jackson has some fair Flat form to his name and has scope for improvement over timber whilst Invicta Lake will be a popular each-way shout for many. He is consistent if a little exposed but always seems to run his race and should be in the mix once again.
