Verdict

FREDDIES PORTRAIT won over 3m in soft going in a point-to-point at Tinahely in March and he'll relish the longer trip after three runs over shorter over hurdles. He may be too strong for Sedgefield third Blake Dean, who is thoroughly exposed, and Turtle Cask. The latter was second over track and trip off this mark at the start of the year, however, and a repeat of that form would put him bang in the picture. Foot The Bill and Minella Hero have a bit to prove at present.
