Verdict

Plenty that would need to find some of their old form to take a hand here and this may be best left to the Stratford 1-2 of His Dream and BOETHIUS with Tim Vaughan’s charge taken to reverse those placing on this occasion on slightly better terms. Royal Chieftan makes his handicap debut and may do better in this sphere having shown some ability in point-to-points and novice hurdles. Big Picture looks as though to return to shorter to be effective again with Midnight Aurora having to find some improvement to take a hand with hopes pinned on the increased trip to provide that. Gaelic Flow is a consistent sort and would have place claims if running up to his best.
