Verdict

Bladoun is out to make amends for falling at the last flight at Chepstow on his hurdling debut when looking the likely winner. David Pipe's charge should go very close and it's too soon to write off Uttoxeter winner The Jugopolist as he had a stiff task at Cheltenham last time. Bumper winner Cool George is worth keeping an eye on making his hurdling bow while Subtle Sovereign can be given a chance having made a promising start over timber at Wincanton last time. However, SUERTE AL SALTO was clear of third when chasing home The Romford Pele over C&D a fortnight ago and, with that experience under his belt, he gets the vote in this.
