Verdict

Everaard has won three times here over hurdles and once over fences. Back over the larger obstacles here, he has to go on the short-list while Angel Sun was only beaten a couple of lengths over C&D last time and has been knocking on the door. Pena Dorada and Dystonia's Revenge are others to consider but this looks a good opportunity for E STREET BOY to open his account over fences as he's now had a couple of runs to blow away any cobwebs following a break and only 5lb higher than his last success over timber. Exotic Man has only found one too good in both starts over fences but this trip will stretch his stamina.
