Verdict

Inis Meain hasn't so far replicated his progress on the Flat but remains well handicapped though he'll need to jump better. Summer Star has gone up 10lb for his recent victory here where he appeared to need every yard of the 2m2f trip. Balnaslow has won a point-to-point, a bumper and a maiden hurdle but was well beaten in a Listed contest when last seen in December and this is no easy task on his handicap debut. Formidableopponent was very progressive when last seen at the backend of 2011 and would be a threat to all if ready for this. ST DEVOTE was reappearing after more than a year off when a close fourth behind Tennis Cap here last month. He travelled strongly until fading close home that day so looks the one to be on here. Matsukaze has had very little experience but has more to offer and can snatch a place.
