Verdict

Meister Eckhart arrives on the back of a couple of wins in bumpers and should go well on his first start over hurdles. Prankster was a decent performer on the Flat in France back in 2009 and could make his presence felt, but it's another French import in the shape of REALMONT that makes more appeal. He's also having his first start since 2009 when he finished placed in a couple of chases at Auteuil behind none other than today's King George favourite Long Run. If he runs anywhere near that form back over hurdles on his debut for Donald McCain, he's clearly the one to beat. Valley Lad makes most appeal of the remainder.
