In depth

Verdict

A runner-up at Newbury earlier, Highland Parc disappointed last time and headgear is applied. Kingmon's Boy finished a lot closer over track and trip last month while Stratton Oakmont and Extraordinary Man look likely to improve but a chance is taken on a newcomer. At Poets Cross belongs to the family of high-class hurdler At Fishers Cross but FINEST VIEW is a full-sister to four winners over jumps and Alan King’s filly may prove the one to side with.
