Verdict

Petie McSweetie looks up against it on today's terms but the remainder all have a chance of some sort on previous form. OSCAR HILL is the safest option as he bids for a hat-trick having won a couple of plating hurdles last month. Cool Touch would figure if reproducing his best efforts over fences and Pure Faith's fifth in the Melling Chase at Aintree back in April is good form in the context of this race. Spear Thistle is another winning chaser back over the smaller obstacles while Dune Shine and Ockey De Neulliac are recent winners of selling hurdles and not easily dismissed.
