Verdict

THEATRELANDS won twice over hurdles in October and should make a winning start over the larger obstacles if his jumping is up to scratch. Minkie Moon has yet to show much in the way of ability so the danger is probably Peter Bowen's recent acquisition Double Double, who won a maiden hurdle at Gowran when last racing under NH Rules and has been in action on the Flat this year.
