Verdict

Flying Verse arrives in good form and is not penalised for his win in a conditionals’ chase at Stratford 10 days ago under Charlie Todd. River Of Intrigue has been pretty consistent over fences this year and Brodie Hampson takes off a handy 5lb. I See You Well and Stockburn are only six-year-olds so should have more to offer. Wilberdragon is worth a second look, as is Barbrook Star, but Keltus, thrown in on his best form, was beaten in a hunter chase on his final start last season. FORGOT TO ASK struggled with his jumping prior to wind surgery but came good at Ffos Las in May and was keeping on over 3m at the same track later – he still has time on his side.
