Verdict

VILLAGE VIC has yet to win over hurdles but has been keeping much better company than this. The highest rated in the race, he can finally get off the mark. Bowie, Expanding Universe and Key To The West all found one too good last time with the latter making most appeal dropping down a grade today. Warden Hill and Tipsy Gypsy are a couple of the less-exposed types that should also go well, but Courtesy Call is preferred. He was considered good enough to make his hurdling bow in a Grade 2 at Kempton and Nicky Henderson has won this contest with a four-year-old before.
