Verdict

Pantxoa carried a 6lb penalty to a battling success at Ffos Las but he's not very big and has to concede weight all round in what looks a very competitive heat. He should still get involved but Jonjo O'Neill trained the runner-up in that race and can take his revenge here through FULL OF JOY, who looked in very good form when scoring at Bangor. Cinevator easily landed a handicap hurdle in April and made a successful start over fences at Fontwell in August. He's on the upgrade and should be in the shake-up while Annacotty, a winning point-to-pointer and hurdler, makes his debut over fences and looks very interesting from this mark.
