Verdict

PRICELESS ART had no trouble opening his account over hurdles when teaming up with A P McCoy at Bangor. The champ is on board again today and the partnership can double its tally, despite the penalty. Shifting Gold also carries extra after winning over a shorter trip here in March. Kevin Ryan's charge has been in decent form on the Flat lately, beating today's rival Magic Haze on the Fibresand in July, and should have no problem with the distance. Heart Of Dubai has something to prove having disappointed at Cartmel last time, while Irish import Exit To Anywhere may need more time to acclimatise.
