Verdict

Top Wood is sure to be popular here following his second to Bakbenscher while One For Harry is bidding for a hat-trick after wins at Sedgefield and Newcastle, though has been raised a further 12lb since his last success. KING OF THE WOLDS was no match for Eduard on his hurdling debut at Newcastle but showed the benefit of that experience to win by six lengths on heavy ground at Wetherby over Christmas. He looks to be on upward curve and, though not especially well handicapped here, could be worth risking at the likely odds. Stopped Out bounced back to form at Kelso but is on a career-high mark again now while Hollo Ladies seems better over fences. Agglestone Rock would have a chance on his old form but hasn't raced over hurdles since 2011 and has been below par on the all-weather lately. Spirit Of Nation won at Perth in August but may need this.
