Verdict

Four times a winner on the Flat, AGENT ARCHIE got off the mark over hurdles at the first time of asking at Ludlow in November. He'll presumably need to win this if he's to take up his entry in the Supreme Novices' at the Festival, but looks capable of doing so as the placed horses at Ludlow have both subsequently won. Reve De Nuit is a winning handicapper on the Flat and could figure if taking to the obstacles. He's rated much higher on the level than Tilos Gem who also makes his hurdling debut, while Papillon Parc and Copt Hill could prove best of the remainder with hurdling experience.
