Verdict

Thomas Crapper has some decent form in the book but got bogged down under a penalty over a longer trip here at the start of the month and that may be the case again today. Donald McCain's pair Radio Nowhere, fourth at Leicester earlier this month, and Spitfire Ace, placed in a point-to-point and a bumper, could go well but the interesting one is WHISPER. Nicky Henderson's four-year-old easily won a Ffos Las bumper in April on his racecourse debut and the runner-up already has a rating of 116 over hurdles. One For The Boss is probably the pick of the remainder.
