Verdict

WISHING AND HOPING won a bumper at Wincanton last December and wasn't disgraced in two later runs in that sphere in better company. He obviously goes well fresh and may have been found a decent opportunity to make a winning start over timber. Takeitfromalady stayed well on the Flat so could figure if his jumping stands up. Amber Spyglass, another bumper winner, should have a future over hurdles while Dynamic Ranger is preferred to May's course and distance runner-up Sebs Sensei of those with jumping experience.
