    Verdict

    MORTENS LEAM (NAP) can win this for a second year running for the Pam Sly team. He made a very promising start over fences at Wetherby when beaten under a length by subsequent winner Ami Desbois and the front two pulled clear. Mullaghboy has already run three times over hurdles here this season, winning his second start, but has to compete with the selection off level weights. So does Who You For, who also makes his chasing bow but has won a point-to-point. Oakidoaki has had one run over fences but was well beaten at Lingfield.
