In depth

Verdict

On The Feather will be among the market leaders in this but she's creeping up the weights, despite not winning. Flashy Star has gone backwards since a promising debut but Petrocelli could be interesting racing in selling company for the first time over hurdles while Bold Tara also has her sights lowered. Wicklewood had form in better company last year but has a long absence to overcome while Bahira didn't appear to stay this longer trip at Bangor. STADIUM OF LIGHT hasn't been pulling up any trees but ran a bit better than the final result suggests at Cartmel last time and has been dropped a couple of pounds since - he gets a speculative vote.
