Verdict

Fakenham fourth Ethics Girl, a winner on the Flat in August, may do better over this extra half-mile while Imperial Leader, second twice in bumpers last year and well backed on both occasions, should make a hurdler. Harvey's Hope sets a decent standard on his victory over C&D in July while point-to-point winners Isthereadifference and Tango In The Night and bumper winner Jeano De Toulouse are also worth a second look, as is Up For An Oscar. BALLYALTON won between the flags a year ago before landing bumpers at Warwick and Doncaster. He beat Kayserberg in the second of those and the runner-up has already scored over hurdles this season so Ian Williams' five-year-old might be good enough to open his account over timber at the first time of asking.
