Verdict

Jacamar, Le Milos and Treasure Dillon were all due to run in the 3.30 here yesterday with the latter preferred if taking part. Demon Fou could only manage fourth at Wincanton raised 10lb for winning at the same track earlier but Colditz Castle should improve for last month’s third at Worcester. Duc De Beauchene is partnered by last year’s winning conditional and has undergone wind surgery since last in action while Lungarno Palace also has a shout dropping down in class as he reverts to hurdling. But VOODOO DOLL also faces an easier task than when finishing a decent third in the soft going at Aintree last time and he gets a speculative vote in an open contest. Irish raider Trendsetter doesn’t look particularly well handicapped but Don't Shout is less exposed having won a novice hurdle at Hereford recently and is preferred to fellow handicap newcomer Mc Alpine.
