Verdict

CIRCUS STAR hit form with a vengeance last month. He made all at Hexham before an even more impressive victory at Wetherby on Boxing Day. John Dixon's charge could take some stopping despite a hike in the weights. At the other end of the weights, Nautical Twilight has a shout after going close over track and trip two weeks ago. She's preferred to Lysino, upped in class after making the frame over these hurdles last time. Sam Lord is another to consider off his current mark but Spanish Fleet was still beaten a distance despite finishing third at Carlisle recently.
