Verdict

Sarteano returned from chasing to land a 1m6f handicap at Tramore last June. He ran some fine races over jumps during the summer and can go well here. Try Freedom gained his first career success on his 30th start over 1m3f here in December but a 7lb rise won't help. GREEN TO GOLD made rapid strides over hurdles last autumn winning at Punchestown and Cork and looks ready to gain his first victory on the level from what looks a lenient mark. Green Mile will be making his debut on the surface but has won three times on the Flat and is no forlorn hope despite having his first start since July.
