Verdict

Sea Storm has the highest rating of the 13 runners but James Moffatt's Wetherby winner struggled under his penalty at Haydock last time and may do so again here so a better bet looks to be WOODY WALLER, whop gets the verdict with Abolition rated the best of the rest. The selection was capable on the flat, has shown promise from limited opportunities over hurdles and, with Howard Johnson's team in good form, he looks worth siding with. Pontop showed a reasonable level of form in bumpers and has to be of interest first time out over hurdles. Best Horse has disappointed in both starts for Ferdy Murphy and looks best watched for the present, while Simple Jim would need to improve on what he showed on his return to hurdling at Wetherby recently. Richard Fahey's Abolition was the pick of these on the flat and has to be of interest on his debut over timber but marginal preference is for Woody Waller.
