Verdict

Get It On won over fences at Cartmel in May and can race off a lower mark back over timber. Chebsey Beau won a maiden hurdle at Towcester but this is tougher and Mr Maynard also takes on better opposition off a higher mark having won here last month. Knight In Purple drops in class but arrives out of form so that should leave the way clear for MR SHANTOU. A last hurdle blunder didn't help his cause at Hexham last time but the champion steered him to victory at Market Rasen earlier in the year and is back on board today.
