Verdict

Progressive novice HAPPYGOLUCKY was beaten only by a rejuvenated/well-handicapped sort in the Ultima at Cheltenham last month and looks a worthy favourite as he bids to go one place better off only 2 lb higher. Top Notch and Cloudy Glen also ran crackers at the Festival and head the dangers, while the unexposed Sam Brown is an interesting runner on his handicap debut.
