This contest could be at the mercy of Charlie Longsdon's ABBOTSWOOD, who struggled in a hot maiden hurdle at Uttoxeter last time but should find these calmer waters much easier and benefit from a 163 day break. The booking of Richard Johnson once more is also noteworthy and the pair can account for Bradford Bridge, who has been slightly disappointing in his career so far, and Speedalong, who ran a career best at lofty odds at Taunton last month.
BRADFORD BRIDGE couldn't have been 100% at Taunton in March and with his previous hurdling efforts containing potential he can get back on track. Similar comments apply to Abbotswood and he is fancied to pose the chief threat after a break.
