Verdict

Railway Dillon hasn't done a lot wrong under Rules, finishing second in a bumper and placed in both starts over hurdles. He is certainly one for the short-list here but may just have to give best to SEREN ROUGE. Keith Reveley's gelding took a while to get the hang of things on his introduction to hurdling at Carlisle in October but stayed on strongly once the penny dropped. The form of that race has worked out quite well and the six-year-old can open his account here. Fourjacks and Brave Spartacus both bring decent bumper form into the contest, but former pointer Why Are You Asking may just need this.
