Verdict

Second-season hurdlers have an appalling record in this race which is a worrying trend for supporters of last month's Haydock scorer Balder Success, Gerry Feilden winner Lyvius and the returning Ranjaan. The latter will be worth keeping in mind for one of these big handicaps later in the season however. Olofi was raised 8lb after winning at Cheltenham and runner-up Cash And Go is now 4lb better off. He looks the pick of Nicky Henderson's quartet as top weight Petit Robin would have to be a very smart performer to complete his hat-trick under a welter burden on ground this soft. IT'S A GIMME only found last year's winner Raya Star too good on his reappearance over C&D and, given he stays further, shouldn't be stopping at the end of this. AP McCoy has opted to ride the Jonjo O'Neill gelding ahead of Guinness Hurdle second Princeton Plains and Tony Martin's Down Royal runner-up Thomas Edison so he gets the nod. Rigidity, second 12 months ago off a similar mark and runner-up at Musselburgh last month, could be best of the rest though Dan Breen has done well since being put back over hurdles and Into Wain could figure off bottom weight.
