Fairly useful maiden hurdler whose record last season was mixed. Never figured on chase debut at Hereford (20.8f) 25 days ago and he'll need to show the benefit of that run to figure here.

Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

DORKING LAD marked himself down as a candidate for headgear when runner-up at Fontwell 11 days ago, soon off the bridle but keeping on. So, with blinkers now enlisted, he could be worth chancing to put it all together with his yard in good order. This is an open-looking affair though, with Animal, Confirmation Bias and Seven No Trumps just a trio of others to consider, along with Star Academy.
