Verdict

BLACK COW got his act together over hurdles last time when just failing to catch the winner over track and trip. He has little to beat in this and Paul Nicholl's charge can open his account. Dancing Olga was beaten a distance when third here last month and winning pointer One More Tune may prove a bigger threat. Rain Check is a half-brother to a hurdles winner and could also get involved in this company on his racecourse debut.
