Blushing Bull is selected here ahead of Snoopy Loopy and Ironside. Despite the fact that his stable is not firing on all cylinders at present, Blushing Bull stands out on form and has proven that he can handle the testing underfoot conditions. As such, he warrants the call. Much as Snoopy Loopy has not raced since winning at Hexham in May, he still looks the best of the rest. With In Accord having a lot to find with the selection on November Chepstow form, Ironside, whose run behind Lord Olympia last time was a respectable effort, could nab a place. For the selection, though, we will stick with Blushing Bull.
