Race Verdict

Top Of The Range was a shade disappointing when sent off odds-on favourite over 2m at Sandown last time but the step up to this trip will suit and he looks sure to go well. FIGHTING FLYNN has shaped encouragingly on three of his four outings to date and although he meets Nicky Henderson's representative on 1lb worse terms than he would in a handicap, he is still progressing and the 6lb he receives could tilt the balance in his favour. Quotica De Poyans is worth a second glance reverting to hurdles.
