Verdict

Trainer Rebecca Curtis has an excellent record at this venue (23% strike rate) and her penalised Bangor winner RUTHLESS ARTICLE is fancied to go in again under in-form pilot Sean Bowen. He did things nicely on that second hurdling outing a fortnight ago and sets a decent standard. Come On Come On is greatly respected on debut for the Skelton yard while Adjutant should be capable of having a say in the finish if building on his hurdling bow over C&D in March and he now has the champion jockey to assist his claims.
