Verdict

If Per Chance hasn't had much experience over hurdles but has been going well on the Flat and can go well from his lowly spot in the handicap. Flying Light was a bit disappointing at Galway after easily landing a maiden there earlier but several of these arrive in top form including Grange, who is improving fast and was a very convincing winner at Punchestown last month. He's been handed an 11lb rise but should still get involved and can hold hat-trick seeking Doc Hollywood, who has been raised a massive 13lb for a narrow success at Fairyhouse. TREAT YOURSELF may have been slightly fortunate to score at Gowran last time as his nearest rival stumbled after the last. However, he may have hit the front too soon that day and a 7lb rise is completely negated by Gareth Malone's claim so he's handed the vote.
