Verdict

Huntingdon winner Brother Tedd will make a bold bid to defy his penalty but JOLLY'S CRACKED IT showed more than enough last season to suggest he can win a bumper and is taken to shrug off a recent absence. Dashaway is a full brother to last year's Champion Bumper Briar Hill and ran green on his debut at Ffos Las. He should be capable of better while Wolftrap hinted at ability on his introduction at Warwick. Davy Doubt was bought after winning a Loughanmore point-to-point last April and, though he might need this, is worth monitoring for future reference.
