Race Verdict

Division one of the bumper looks a reasonable opportunity for TURANJO BELLO to open his account. Philip Hobbs' point-to-point recruit made a pleasing start over the C&D when second on good to soft ground and, with improvement forthcoming, he is expected to play a leading role. The previous winners Big Society and Mister Newby must carry penalties but can't be ruled out, while Alpancho is another for the shortlist following his Sandown second in February.

Selection: Turanjo Bello        Danger: Big Society        Alternative: Alpancho
