Verdict

Emitom was a smart staying novice last season but he jumped poorly on his reappearance in the Relkeel Hurdle and finished last. A return to 3m may give him more time to get organised but he’s always inclined to throw in the odd blunder. THE WORLDS END (NAP) has a penalty for winning the Long Walk but he’s come right back to his best this season and should see off this bunch. West Approach has been chasing but may appreciate the switch back to hurdles, though is also engaged tomorrow at Exeter. Clyne is usually found out in this grade and One Night In Milan is a handicapper who is better over shorter trips while the 2018 winner Donna's Diamond hasn’t raced since tailed off here 12 months ago.
