Verdict

The ground is right for useful bumper winner Astronomic View who made a fair start to his hurdle career at Ffos Las but it’s not a given that he’ll be suited by this sharp track. There was plenty to like about KING OF THE LAKE’s racecourse’s debut at Wincanton, where he travelled strongly and jumped well, and he looks an interesting prospect. Irish point winner Painted Wolf is also worth a look along with Emily’s Star.[Emily Weber]
