In depth

Verdict

Pastek has been in grand form in point-to-points but has only managed two places in 14 previous starts under Rules. RUMBURY GREY, on the other hand, has taken to regulation fences like a duck to water and drew readily clear to complete his hat-trick at Ffos Las last month. Benedictus was a market rival that day but got no further than the second obstacle and now has a bit to prove, while Allerford Jack must bounce back quickly from being pulled up over a longer trip between the flags eight days ago having won his previous two starts.
