Verdict

Icefall has placed in all three starts over timber and is weighted to beat the returning New List on today’s terms. Shadow Sadness was sent off favourite at Worcester last time and was still in contention when falling three hurdles from home but GLOBETROTTER is preferred. The latter finished a close-up third at Perth on his hurdling bow and normal progress should see him make a bold bid in this. Luvly Boy Blue also ran well on his first start over timber but that was back in April while Four Kingdoms has won four times on the Flat and goes hurdling for the first time.
