Verdict

GRANDADS HORSE overcame an absence and trouble in running when beating Forever Waining by three lengths over C&D last month. The runner-up is 7lb better off now but is struggling to get his head in front whereas Charlie Longsdon's charge still seems to be progressing. He can confirm the form and take this. Bhaltair is back over hurdles after being well beaten on his chasing debut at Bangor but his overall form doesn't look good enough here while this is a tough start for winning pointer Say No and Riverside Poppet may also need more time.
