Race Verdict

It is probably best to focus on the Donald McCain-trained duo, AMRON LAD and Boruler. The former ran out a cosy winner over 2m4f at Haydock last month and he meets his stablemate on 4lb better terms than he would in a handicap. Boruler is open to improvement, however, and he does look the obvious danger. Cian Boy has shown ability in bumpers and he should not be totally overlooked making his hurdles debut.

Selection: Amron Lad        Danger: Boruler        Alternative: Cian Boy
