Verdict

Staunton didn’t take to fences at Fontwell but was placed three times over hurdles last season off this sort of mark. She has claims in a modest finale but ODELLO appeared to enjoy the step up in trip last month at Hereford and is given the chance to build on that over another quarter-mile, though has gone up 6lb. Western Sunrise might be worth another chance over the trip while Bisoubisou won over 2m4f at Fakenham and should stay the extra. Just Spot and chaser Black Narcissus might be the pick of the remainder.
