Kevin Prendergast's Oddshoes has performed better on more suitable ground of late and he has solid claims on the evidence of the defeat of Ffos Las Diamond at Hereford last month but he does seem a shade high in the weights and preference is for WADE FARM BILLY, who gets the verdict with Calaficial rated the best of the rest. The selection, a bumper winner a year ago, has shown gradual improvement in recent starts over hurdles and given that he is open to further improvement Gary Moore's gelding looks the one they all have to beat. Pilgrims Lane did not beat much when landing a similar contest at Hereford last month and, like Oddshoes, may struggle under his penalty. Bingo des Mottes is less exposed than most of these after just four starts but he needs to improve on all known form to trouble the judge, while Wizard of Odds is unlikely to run following his effort at Towcester yesterday. Alan King's Calaficial was going well when falling two out at Market Rasen at the beginning of the month and has every chance provided that he is none the worse after that tumble. Marginal preference though is for Wade Farm Billy, who looks to be going the right way over hurdles.
