Verdict

COOMBE HILL has run well either side of being pulled up in the Foxhunters at Cheltenham last month. It could be his turn again today ahead of Rumbury Grey. The latter has been well beaten despite finishing second on his last couple of starts but still finished well ahead of Postmaster at Doncaster in February. How's My Friend is usually thereabouts in these events while Rumbavu has won a point-to-point since finishing runner-up at Catterick last month and can also figure.
