Verdict

This is complicated by the fact that Hold Em Cowboy was due to run over hurdles here last night. Rockawango and Hidden Future's recent efforts don't inspire confidence but the latter is tried in blinkers for the first time while Wetherby fourth Be My Deputy is fitted with a visor. Strobe beat the latter and Hidden Future here last July but was tailed off on his reappearance over 2m here last month in a race in which COEUR DE FOU was only beaten a short-head. Tom George's charge is a couple of pounds higher but looks the one to beat.
