Verdict

Baileys Concerto had every chance when unseating his rider on his chasing bow and merits serious consideration here. Simply Wings has more experience over fences than most of these and should be thereabouts again while Fighting Flynn won over hurdles at Kempton in April and looks the type to do well over the larger obstacles. Financial Climate must also have some sort of chance after his fourth at Uttoxeter but TULLYRAINE can only improve on his third at Stratford and, as that looked a decent contest, he can open his account here.
