Verdict

Bracken House is likely to make a better chaser than hurdler judged on his victory at Cartmel but has a penalty to overcome in this. Beeves is sure to have been well schooled and has already won a bumper, a point-to-point and twice over hurdles. Book 'Em Danno was a decent hurdler a couple of years ago but might need this, though probably has more scope than the ex-Irish Hunting Tower. SUPERIOR QUALITY was thought good enough to contest the Grade 1 Albert Bartlett at Cheltenham in March. He was eventually pulled up but had won earlier over hurdles at Warwick and Musselburgh and looks the type to make a decent chaser - he gets the vote.
