Verdict

Guess Again was only beaten a length on his hurdling bow at Carlisle in November and should be thereabouts again, while the unfortunate Getting Ready didn't get a chance to improve on his promising debut as he was carried out early in a race at Kelso last Thursday. However, AMRON LAD makes more appeal than both as he finished a creditable second at Bangor on his first start over timber behind the progressive Magnifique Etoile. Donald McCain's charge gets the nod to open his account here with the remainder hard to fancy.
