Silver Jaro, Learning The Blues and Stumped are the three to look at here with Silver Jaro taken to come out on top. Stumped was a maiden on the Flat, rated 69, and has shown some promise over hurdles, notably last time when finishing a respectable fourth in a decent Newbury contest. He may be a little one paced, but despite the big field here, he has arguably the most solid form in the race and must be respected. Silver Jaro stepped up on a debut third at Bangor when chasing home Pauillac at Kempton, and a line through the winner gives him the beating of Stumped. If Silver Jaro can maintain that improvement he will take some beating. Learning The Blues finished a respectable third on his racecourse debut behind stable companion Raslan, and that was a decent effort. He should have learned from the experience and can reach the frame here. Silver Jaro loooks the one to be on.
