At The Races Verdict

An intriguing clash of some hot chasing prospects and it would be no surprise to see Torpillo attempt to make all as he did when impressing on his fencing bow at Warwick. He may not get an easy time of things up front, with the likes of chasing debutant Grand Sancy and Summerville Boy sure to be snapping at his heels, and if this is run at a breakneck pace, it could play into the hands of Dan Skelton's smooth-travelling hat-trick seeker NUBE NEGRA. The five-year-old has looked an accomplished jumper in his two appearances over the larger obstacles and could announce himself at the top table with success in this.

Timeform Verdict

SUMMERVILLE BOY got a faltering career back on track switched to fences at Uttoxeter last month, and given the level he achieved as a novice hurdler, he boasts the ability to be a major force in this discipline. Torpillo receives weight all round and is a massive danger on the back of his Warwick win, with Nube Negra also of interest.
