Verdict

Spring Moon and GETMEOUTHEDOLDRUMS are the only two with any recent form worth a mention. Only a half-length separated them over 3m6f at Huntingdon recently when they finished second and third respectively, but Charlie Longsdon's charge gets the nod to reverse running as he's only had the three starts and has the greater scope for improvement. It was back in January that Dunkelly Castle last showed any form with a second at Wincanton and it was March last year when Trigger The Light finished runner-up over these fences.
