Verdict

Raised 9lb for winning at Bangor last month, DAMUT I’M OUT (NAP) found himself too far behind the winner at Stratford last time when making up lots of late ground to finish third. This extra distance will help his cause and Alastair Ralph’s charge can return to winning ways. Gentleman Moore last won over fences in 2016 but finished runner-up at Worcester last time while Ballyknock Cloud has slipped down the weights and posted a better effort over track and trip recently. Isle Road won over hurdles here last week and is 10lb higher back over the larger obstacles while Pointed And Sharp was placed over timber here in May but has fallen in both previous starts over fences.
