BOBBLE BORU's Ludlow bumper win has been franked and she's sure to have had plenty of schooling over timber. Her half-brother, Sir Roger, won a handicap over this course and distance and Venetia Williams' mare doesn't have a lot to beat today. August Hill was placed twice in bumpers but has been well beaten in both starts over hurdles so Revaader may be the pick of those with experience, though she only beat one home on heavy going at Lingfield last time. Former bumper winner Reach The Beach has much to prove but Welcometothejungle may have some scope.
