Timeform pick out three bets from Wetherby on Saturday...
"He very much looks the part for fences and is expected to have even more to offer..."
Mark Walford is in good form at present and can take this with Quest For Life, who caught the eye when finishing with running left in second at this track over two miles last month, staying on strongly late in the day. Based on that effort, the step up in trip will bring about further improvement, and he is expected to go one better this time. Truckers Lodge is potentially a useful prospect to the hurdling ranks, while Noble Robin and Silva Eclipse are others worthy of consideration.
Three previous chasing winners in this race but neither Mortens Leam or Hogan's Height have reached the level of form that De Dollar Man showed when winning impressively at Exeter last month on his second chasing start. He very much looks the part for fences and is expected to have even more to offer, this looking a good opportunity for him to notch a double. Mortens Leam and Hogan's Height appear the pair to give him most to think about.
Though First Up will have to improve on what he achieved in juvenile hurdle races to win from his opening handicap mark, he could still be seen as well treated based on his Flat form for Jeremy Noseda and could run a big race now taking on some fairly exposed sorts. Gran Maestro, Walsingham Grange and Perseid head the list of dangers.
