Verdict

Meganisi beat Aaim To Prosper in a much quicker time at Newbury than PUFFIN BILLY had achieved in a maiden hurdle 24 hours earlier. He looks a decent novice but Oliver Sherwood also holds the latter in high regard and, with plenty of scope for further improvement, the four-year-old can come out on top today. Up To Something has won two bumpers and a maiden hurdle over similar trips and two recent defeats have come over further. He should make his presence felt but Stratford winner Bathcounty would need to improve again to figure.
