In depth

Verdict

Bumper winner Letsby Avenue has hinted at ability in both runs over timber but this looks a good opportunity for SILVER EAGLE to open his account. Third on his hurdling debut at Warwick, he was then runner-up in a Newbury race that's worked out well and Kim Bailey's grey should go one better here. Radio Nowhere weakened quickly at Chepstow last time and was pulled up. He has a bit to prove now while Kilcaskin Star returns from a break and wasn't improving before that. Serious Mixture should step up on his fourth at Fontwell, however, and is preferred to another ex-pointer, Monbeg, who will do better when tackling fences.
