Verdict

The mare Natural Spring has been in decent form of late and would be thereabouts in this if taking to the larger obstacles. Sean Quinlan has stepped off Basford Ben to ride the returning Lucky Lukey and he may be the pick of Jennie Candlish's pair while Regal Presence and South Stack have got to go on the short-list. The former won over hurdles at Ascot last month while the latter was a consistent sort over timber. GREEN WIZARD wasn't winning out of turn over hurdles here 11 days ago and looks the type to do well over fences. He can make a winning start if handling the drop in distance.
