      Verdict

      Astrum has become expensive to follow and was pulled up last time in a novices' handicap at Carlisle. ROCK A DOODLE DOO has disappointed on the Flat since scoring at Wetherby but should have the ability to defy his penalty in this company, though the mare Grange Hall won a maiden hurdle here in March and was taking on better company last time at Punchestown. Souer De Rois has hinted at ability in bumpers but may need today's experience.
