Verdict

Harris dead-heated in a marathon over hurdles here in December and connections quickly send him over fences to which he should definitely be suited. Pinerolo makes his handicap debut over fences after a couple of moderate efforts and he's always looked like a potential staying chaser. DIOCLES is taking a big step-up in trip after scoring over 2m3f here where he jumped well and stayed on strongly. He's been raised 7lb but looks another nice prospect for his yard and can complete the double. Alderbrook Lad won two handicaps here before finding Supreme Asset too strong at Carlisle last week. He's never been anywhere near this trip under Rules so his stamina has to be taken on trust. Son Of Flicka, who won the Coral Cup in 2012, could only finish second in a three-horse affair here on New Year's Day but probably retains some ability and is well handicapped over fences. Mitchell's Way, a dual winning hurdler, has only had one run over fences but A P McCoy's presence in the saddle is a bonus.
