Verdict

Polished Rock alternates between hurdles and fences but has won three of his four starts this year so is clearly in good form, though has been hit with an 11lb hike in the ratings. Scooby was successful at Fontwell in May when last seen and the handicapper has given a chance to Our Reward. Brown Bear would also have a chance on his best form but Arthur's Reuben has been absent since pulled up when favourite at Southwell in the spring. MAMOO is the only course winner in the line-up but ran a shocker last time at Huntingdon. However, Bryony Frost keeps faith with Neil King’s charge who has the visor back on today.
