Verdict

Heart Dancer was beaten a distance when runner-up over hurdles at Carlisle and makes his chasing bow along with Daasij. The latter scored over timber at Ayr early in the year but Gleaan Na Ndochais is experienced over fences and has gone close on a couple of occasions. CLOVERHILL LAD makes more appeal, however, as he was winning for the second time in a chase when beating Pamak D'Airy at Hexham recently. Stuart Coltherd's charge looks capable of following up despite a 6lb rise.
