A host of summer jumping specialists are on show here including Ostland, Buck Mulligan, Life Of A Luso and Lord Ryeford. Cootehill improved again to score at Ludlow last month, while Marley Roca was successful over C&D four weeks ago following a lay-off and can't be discounted. That'Ll Do has won two of his last three but Cruchain was a lucky winner at Cheltenham and this is much more competitive. DEE EE WILLIAMS has only managed one win in six starts over fences but ran a cracking race over hurdles at Aintree last time and could be thrown in here on his best form. He gets the nod though Owen Glendower is better than he showed when favourite at Haydock last month.
