Verdict

THE CHIEF VILLAIN is taken to make a winning start over fences for Stuart Crawford. The County Antrim handler also runs dual winning hurdler The Ice Factor but the former has the better recent form to his name. Lucinda Russell also runs two with Blueside Boy preferred to Rowdy Rocher. But Roc De Prince has been dropped a couple of pounds and looks the best of those with chasing experience.
