Verdict

David Pipe runs Enfant Du Lune and Laustra Bad in this. The latter is probably more effective over hurdles nowadays and looks the pick but he has to give 12lb to TRIP THE LIGHT. Phil Middleton's gelding is well suited by soft ground and looked to be on the way back when fourth at Huntingdon 11 days ago. First-time blinkers can help him back into the winner's enclosure here. McCoy partners the lightly-raced Natural High, who did well to beat Prompter at Worcester earlier this month, and he rates a big danger but the market should be monitored regarding the chances of Harry Hunt, Moorland Sunset and Grafite, who all return from a lay-off. A Little Swifter and Old Way may also need this.
