Verdict

Herdsman has got his act together over hurdles of late and landed a double at Wetherby beating Tweedledrum last time. However, he was all out to score by a neck on that occasion and is 6lb higher today so a chance is taken on CORRIN WOOD instead. The latter finished a respectable third in a higher grade race at Carlisle three weeks ago behind the progressive Shutthefrontdoor - a similar effort here should suffice. Ski Sunday has claims if forgiven a below-par run at Ffos Las last time and Tullyraine has slipped down to a tempting mark if rediscovering his best.
