Verdict

Kalimantan has been in poor form on the Flat but is well clear of these on official ratings over hurdles and has the bonus of Richard Johnson in the saddle. Ocean Bentley was a 33/1 chance when second to Astrum at Stratford and may have been flattered by that result. CHICKSGROVE SPRITE has plenty to find at the weights but is partnered by a 7lb claimer and was the only one backed against the in-form Prince Khurram at Fontwell last month. She is probably better than she showed that day.
