Verdict

GREAT TEMPO became disappointing over hurdles but has discovered a new lease of life over fences. He’s gone up 4lb since his close-up second at Ffos Las but could still go one better here. Kings Temptation was in touch when falling last time at Huntingdon having won at the same track previously. He won’t be far away with a clear round and Atlanta Ablaze bounced back from a fall at Towcester to finish second at Fontwell. Broom Tip still has time on his side as does Cabaret Queen, lightly raced over hurdles but a winner between the flags. She ran well at Aintree after a break though, like Blagapar, wouldn’t want the going to get any quicker.
