The Sportsman's Verdict
Drumlee Watar cost 65,000 pounds after winning a point-to-point and is interesting on debut for Warren Greatrex, while Dashel Drasher finished in the middle of the pack in the Champion Bumper at Cheltenham and looks a nice recruit to hurdling. Tossapenny has some decent form in the book, while Casko D'Airy needs a betting check on his first outing for Paul Nicholls. KATESON was second in the Grade 2 bumper at Aintree in April and has always shaped like he would be better suited to hurdles and a stiffer stamina test, both of which he gets here.
