Verdict

SIMARTHUR has won a bumper and hurdle at Hexham but tackles fences for the first time today. However, he did land a point-to-point in 2012 so it shouldn't be a problem and he can get the better of Oscatara. Donald McCain's gelding has also won between the flags but has proved difficult to train under Rules and was pulled up when making a comeback over hurdles at Uttoxeter on New Year's Eve. Croco Bay won at Catterick before only going down by a short-head at Kelso but won't find it easy giving weight to less-exposed rivals and One In A Row was very moderate over hurdles.
