Verdict

Dual bumper winner Malystic jumped poorly on his hurdling debut at Market Rasen where he was well supported. He'll be better for that experience as will No Regrets, who found 2m4f on heavy ground at Hexham taxing his stamina. UNAI has a nice pedigree for jumping and showed plenty of promise in a Warwick bumper in April. He's travelled a long way for this and gets the nod though winning bumper Order Of Thistle can get into contention after a couple of reasonable runs over timber. Another bumper winner, Dares To Dream, has shown nothing in two starts over hurdles.
