Verdict

An ordinary affair in which Harry Fry's French import Vauban Du Seuil, who won a bumper last June, is sure to be popular. All But Grey has been quite highly tried so far, as has BE BOP BORU. Tim Vaughan's charge probably has the scope to do better as he beat Devil's Dyke in a Ludlow bumper last season so he gets a tentative vote. Newforge House and Rugged Jack also had form in bumpers but both disappointed over hurdles last time, as did Georgea.
