Verdict

JAUNTY THOR couldn't quite put the race to bed on stable debut here earlier this month, though he should have come on markedly for the run and now switches to fences, over which his mark is 5lb lower than over hurdles. The eight-year-old can account for Orioninverness, who enjoys testing ground and stayed on well here when last seen in May, and Rancher Lass, who shaped like needing the run at Roscommon last month and represents shrewd Irish connections.

Verdict

JAUNTY THOR matched the very pick of his form when runner-up over hurdles at this venue starting out for Gordon Elliott a fortnight ago, and from 5 lb lower over fences, the case for him is a compelling one. Seven Devils is the tentative forecast pick.
