PINDAR may not be one to take too short a price about as he looked a tricky ride when scoring at Hereford but he's won twice on the Flat as well this year and is still at the right end of the handicap. Barney Curley's charge gets a tentative vote as Lauberhorn and Barrison appear to have lost their way and Share Option is better over fences nowadays. Boa has proved disappointing while Oliver's Gold was beaten 18 lengths when second at Plumpton. Tresor De Bontee also looks worth opposing as he needs further than this.
