Verdict

Carrickboy looks very high in the weights on what he's achieved over fences and has a long absence to overcome as has the once promising Turbo Island, who makes his debut over fences. Bring On The Judge was always more likely to make a chaser than hurdler but fell on his debut over fences at Towcester. He could be well treated here but Bishops Heir has yet to replicate his promising hurdles form in two starts over the bigger obstacles. Bocciani is better over timber and looked very one-paced at Wetherby on Boxing Day so this should go to MR CHIPPY, a winner over this trip at Ffos Las on his reappearance last month and a very good runner-up over a longer distance a Hexham subsequently.
