The Sportsman's Verdict
Chosen Flame got off the mark between the flags when last seen in May before joining Rose Dobbin and warrants a market check, although the form of that success doesn't appear to have worked out so far. Dark Ruler was rated 91 at his pomp on the Flat, while Theatre Legend ran in a Grade 2 bumper at Aintree last term and is also respected. However, it could be worth sticking with the unbeaten I'M TO BLAME, who did it well in two bumpers last winter and is bred to make up into a nice hurdling type for his powerful connections.
