Verdict

Both of Breaking Bits' wins have come over a longer trip at Fontwell but he's best on fast ground and not easily dismissed. WALTZ DARLING only won a seller Catterick last month but his latest second to Lamps, rated 129, was arguably a better effort so Keith Reveley's charge gets the nod. Wom's best efforts have come in lesser company and Focal Maith will need to step up on his second in a maiden hurdle at Fakenham if he's to figure. But St Ignatius made the frame at the same track last time and has scope for improvement on only his fifth start over hurdles.
