In depth

Verdict

Cry Fury was beaten less than two lengths off this mark on his chasing bow over track and trip at the start of the month, well ahead of Antiphony, and would have every chance on that form. Lightentertainment was a useful hurdler in his prime but was pulled up on his chasing debut. Desertmore Hill came in for significant support on his first start for Kerry Lee at Ffos Las but again disappointed, though Richard Johnson keeps faith with the seven-year-old. ALOTTARAIN has only been placed once in five chase starts but can’t get much lower in the weights and Jamie Moore looks a significant jockey booking for Seamus Mullins’ charge.
