Takemeandbreakme hasn't shown much in Ireland but Paddy Brennan is an eyecatching booking and it's worth checking the pair out in the market. Fellow Irish raider, Hidden Horizons, has only finished in mid-division in a couple of ordinary Irish hurdles but he boasts a level of respectable point-to-point form and should be well suited by the return to 3m. His yard have a strong record with their runners in the UK. Valsesia has a 426-day absence to overcome since running a good second at Wetherby at 100-1 and the market may represent the best guide to current fitness and wellbeing. The choice is LADY OF VERONA who gets on well with 7lb claimer Craig Nicol, the combination having finished a good third in handicap hurdle company last time at Newcastle. She's a consistent sort who appears highly likely to benefit from her first attempt at this trip.
