Verdict

PISTOL will have benefited for his first experience of chasing when finishing third over track and trip. Philip Hobbs' dual hurdles winner can come out best in this. A multiple point-to-point winner, My Dads Horse made a promising start over fences when making the frame at Ascot in November. He should figure in the finish while Crystal Swing is rated higher over hurdles than Lord Of The Dunes as both make their debuts over the larger obstacles.
