Prospect Wells, a smart hurdler, wasn't that impressive when beating Awaywiththegreys by three lengths at Ffos Las and the second, who is now blinkered, could easily turn the tables on 7lb better terms. BOLD CHIEF has few miles on the clock and showed plenty of ability over timber before making a winning debut over fences at Ludlow in April. That looks decent form and he is fancied to see off Nagpur, though Venetia Williams' charge only narrowly failed to give weight to a couple of useful novices when third here last time and the second and fourth have franked the form since. Sail And Return has won here three times over hurdles and but faces a stiff task on his chasing bow.
