Verdict

Astrum hasn’t won outside of selling company since 2016 but races off the same mark as when only beaten a length-and-a-quarter in a handicap over course and distance last time and Daniel Sansom is one of only three riders able to claim an allowance in this. Harry Teal is another and he partners LITTLE WINDMILL, whose recent victory over fences here could be franked in the previous race – Neil King’s 10-year-old is rated 7lb lower over hurdles. Flow With Eve has joined Olly Murphy since last seen and may be capable of better but Beyeh appears to have lost the plot and the others have shown little so far.
