Verdict

POUNGACH took a heavy fall after slipping on landing when making his chasing debut at Chepstow and was very careful at his fences on his next start at Wincanton. He will have learnt plenty from that latter run and looks the type to go on to better things. Gullinbursti and Knock A Hand fought out the finish of a handicap hurdle at Newbury in February with the latter just prevailing. Both have had just the one run over fences with the former doing the better of the pair but there's likely to be little between them again. Super Duty, a lightly raced and promising type over timber, was expected to make a winning start over fences at Carlisle but found Bury Parade too good. With that under his belt he can provide the main threat though neither of the remaining pair can be dismissed.
