In depth

Verdict

Up The Straight has been highly tried over fences so far. Botox Has is making his debut over the larger obstacles but he has won three times over hurdles. Both, however, will do better when the rains arrive so PISGAH PIKE can add to a couple of victories at Worcester having placed in a Class 2 handicap there last time.
