Race Verdict

OPERA OG was impressive when recording a first NH victory at Wincanton on Thursday and, providing those exertions haven't taken their toll, he should have few problems defying a 7lb penalty. Todareistodo looks the obvious danger on the back of his emphatic C&D success, while Amuse Me won a hurdle race at this track in October 2010 and looks nicely treated on his return over the larger obstacles.

Selection: Opera Og        Danger: Todareistodo        Alternative: Amuse Me
