Verdict

Morning Sunshine won last time out at Cartmel but that is a quirky course and is not always reflective of horses' chances elsewhere. Although he is respected for winning last time out there may be more of a run from Duke Of Malfi who was sent off as joint favourite last time only to find one too good. Woodlark Island could be a threat if taking to the fences but RED BIRR gets the vote after a good win at Huntingdon last time out. He will enjoy the trip and has got the hang of jumping fences now and although he might prefer the ground to be a touch quicker, he gets the call.
