Verdict

CUBAN PIECE has barely raised a gallop since winning a maiden hurdle at Bangor in November but this is his first appearance in a seller. He should take the honours if anywhere near his best but hardly rates nap material, despite the lack of quality opposition. Leopard Hills is back in the right grade and should strip fitter for his return to action at Exeter last month while Highkingofmunster showed promise on one occasion when trained in Ireland but was completely tailed off on his latest start at Ludlow. The others are a very modest bunch.
