Verdict

Twice a winner over hurdles, NOTUS DE LA TOUR has been mostly plying his trade in pattern company. He's much the best of these over timber and should have no problem getting off the mark over fences at the first time of asking. Hopeful Start made just that when winning twice over hurdles early last year but has lost his way since over the larger obstacles and Cloudy Too makes more appeal. He was in the process of running a creditable race on his chasing bow here before unshipping his rider. Signalman was placed in both starts over fences earlier this year and four-time hurdles winner Stopped Out is one to note on his chasing debut.
