Verdict

Here we have the usual long distance hurdle on the Huntingdon card, in which KILFINICHEN BAY makes plenty of appeal. He was an easy winner on his first run for Charlie Longsdon and a 7lb penalty should not halt progress judging by the manner of that impressive performance at Southwell over only a slightly shorter trip. Ninfea looks the main danger if he can translate recent good form on the level to timber. Neil King has done a really good job with the mare and she is respected on ground that will suit.Top Billing looks next best but faces a tough test conceding weight to the aforementioned duo.
