Robbie has won four times over hurdles and shaped with a bit of promise on his chasing bow at Kelso, though tends to reserve his best for Southwell. DOUBLE HANDFUL looks the type to do well over fences and arrives off the back of a win over the smaller obstacles at Fontwell. Though he'll stay further than this, Lawney Hill's charge can come out on top here ahead of Kambis, another winning hurdler, and fellow chasing debutant Mr Robinson.
