Philip Hobbs has his team firing on all cylinders and BRIGHT ABBEY could be the answer to this having beaten Castlemorris King, who has won since and runs earlier on the card, in a handicap at Wincanton in April. Lyssio is a doubtful runner but Odin has to be considered having got off the mark over course and distance at the start of the month and Ulhan Bute got off the mark on his third start for Venetia Williams at Southwell. Danehill Dante fell on his hurdling debut here and may not be the most straightforward.
