Verdict

Wazowski finished well ahead of Oxford Blu when second at Bangor and will be fancied to go one better here for an in-form yard, though is among the senior runners in this. Dovils Date is also approaching the veteran stage but goes well here and arrives off the back of a cosy victory at Uttoxeter. Phoebus Lescribaa was just beaten at Newton Abbot after winning at Warwick last month and Land League has had a wind operation since his third at Huntingdon. THE CRAFTY TOUCH (NAP) has raced over inadequate trips so far over hurdles. The winning pointer should be much more effective over today’s distance and it’s hard to believe that Jonjo O’Neill Jr can still claim an allowance in a race like this.
