Verdict

LONG LUNCH won a Market Rasen bumper last month and his yard could hardly be in better form. He'll know what's required on his hurdling debut and is fancied to see off the challenge of Macbeth, second at Ballinrobe in July but having his first run today for Tim Vaughan. Snapchat should improve for his fourth at Uttoxeter while point-to-point winner Auld Sthock would have claims on his third at Clonmel in March but was much too keen at Fontwell when making his debut for Gary Moore.
