Verdict

Ironically is obviously of interest if taking her chance having won a fillies' hurdle at Leicester yesterday. However, the King inmate may find life tough carrying a penalty against a couple of far more experienced types and is somewhat reluctantly passed over. Huntingdon winner Everdon Brook ran really well at Newcastle last time when a close second to Delightfully in a large-field handicap. Nevertheless, he's not always the most reliable of sorts and FUTURE DOMINION is preferred. He has been steadily progressive in five hurdle starts and the form of his second to Overlay at Huntingdon in October has been notably franked by the winner going on to complete a hat-trick. A subsequent second to Elegant Olive was another meritorious effort and he looks the one to beat with Charles Greene decent value for his 7lb claim.
