Verdict

Focail Maith looks the best of those with hurdling experience but was tailed off in a handicap at Market Rasen last week and there are a few potentially decent recruits from the Flat lining up here. Fennell Bay won the King George V Handicap at Royal Ascot in 2012 and last ran on the level off a mark of 92. But John Ferguson's classy novices often need a run and the booking of Jamie Moore for ROCKWEILLER catches the eye. This sharp track should suit Steve Gollings' entire and he's likely to start at a working man's price. Impertinent won over 1m4f on the Polytrack in October and is another to consider.
