Verdict

GO DANTE looked a smart prospect when winning his sole bumper start in a good time at Wincanton in March, so he's very much of interest now going hurdling. John Locke has undergone wind surgery since contesting hot races on both his hurdle starts last season, so he retains potential, while Wild Shot is expected to bounce back from a poor run at Downpatrick a fortnight ago.
