Verdict

Charlie Longsdon's stable is going well but Oi Oi Savaloi will have to improve markedly on a couple of starts in bumpers to get involved here. KINGSDALE ORION has proved to be a frustrating sort on the Flat lately but has shown promise in three runs over hurdles, starting favourite for a novice event at Newcastle 18 months ago. This looks a particularly weak affair and Brain Ellison's seven-year-old could well prove good enough. Just Dave may be best of the others with previous experience on his fourth at Wincanton but newcomers So Bazaar and Strong Knight are also worth a second look.
