Verdict

Nebuchadnezzar finished second at Bangor on his debut over hurdles but did not reproduce that form in two later starts. Though he sets the standard in this, BATHSHEBA BAY is preferred as the dual Flat winner has his ground and fitness is rarely an issue for one from his yard. Ayr bumper winner Nickolson should have a future over timber but winning pointer Highate Hill may struggle for pace around this sharp track.
