Verdict

Presence Felt stepped up on his hurdling debut when third at Hereford in December. He has a decent chance to open his account here but CHEAT THE CHEATER deserves a change of luck after finishing third to The Bear Trap at Ffos Las and then second to Ugly Bug over this trip. Claire Dyson's charge gets the nod as stamina may be an issue with the four-year-old Snowed In, third at Market Rasen last time. Virginia Ash and King's Sunset both started favourite last time but disappointed while Thomas Wild fell on his reappearance over fences at Exeter. Samingarry was second over 2m4f here last month but is 4lb higher now.
