Verdict

STRIKEMASTER came with a wet sail to land an amateurs' race at Newcastle earlier this month. He's been lightly campaigned this year so may be able to defy a 4lb higher mark here. Bouggler could be interesting as he's a useful hurdler/chaser on a potentially lenient mark back on the Flat, though may just need this. Kayef will probably also be back over hurdles before long but Naburn should be thereabouts again after recent placed efforts over this trip at Newcastle and Yarmouth. Cowslip is still relatively unexposed and preferred to course and distance winner Generous Dream and Jan Smuts of the others.
