Verdict

There are some decent hurdlers making their chasing debut in this. Big Society is one while Azure Aware, successful at Ffos Las in May, is very lightly raced. Winds And Waves likes soft ground and may have had enough for the season when pulled up at Exeter in April while Tullyraine will have had plenty of schooling. SPANISH ARCH could be thrown in on his fencing bow off a mark of 114 as he's already won a point-to-point and is proven on easy surface. Kielan Woods takes off another 3lb and he must be worth an interest. Trafalgar could figure if fully wound-up while Bangor second Achimota is preferred to Stow of the others.
