Verdict

Son of Flicka won at the Cheltenham Festival in March but he's finished well beaten in two starts this term. Topolski continues to disappoint while Kasbadali is still 9lb higher than when scoring at Ascot in the spring and has been chasing lately. Arkose is on a hat-trick but has gone up another 9lb and drops in distance while Big Easy continues to creep up the weights despite not winning. GILBARRY hasn't raced over hurdles since 2010 but is rated 14lb higher over fences so may have been let in lightly today. He could spring a surprise here though Amigo could also be worth a second look off bottom weight.
