Verdict

Sound Stage hasn't won since March 2010 but nearly always gives his running. He's made the frame on all three 2013 starts and looks a solid each-way option once again. Wait No More obliged over course and distance last time and finds himself 8lb higher as a result. He's another likely to run his race and is essential shortlist material. Le Grand Chene is a possible but WHISKEY AND RED, a rare Irish raider for Colin Bowe, has been runner-up in a couple of really competitive handicap hurdles in his homeland the last twice and is equally at home over the larger obstacles. He also has a hurdling success to his name on the forecast good ground.
