Verdict

Workbench had a couple of runs in bumpers last season and should do better now he tackles hurdles. TURN OVER SIVOLA made a successful start to his hurdling career at Plumpton in May and the second has won twice since. Alan King's five-year-old may be the one to beat here as he has more scope than Swampfire. Sleeping City pulled hard and fell early on in a handicap at Wincanton on Sunday but is presumably none the worse for the experience and could figure if he settles better here but Think Its All Over was well beaten at Ffos Las in April despite finishing fourth.
