Verdict

Sausalito Sunrise had a nice confidence-booster at Bangor 11 days ago but this is a much stiffer task. Oscar Rock has started favourite for all four starts over hurdles and has been quite highly tried. But he's only managed the one win and is in danger of becoming disappointing. Kilbree Kid rattled up a hat-trick last summer but hasn't been seen since well beaten at Cheltenham in October while Landecker and Son Of Suzie look out of their depth, though the mare Tonvadosa is probably progressing. FLYING EAGLE may well have won on his hurdling debut had he not unseated his rider but made no mistake at Ffos Las next time, drawing readily clear of a subsequent winner - he might be a bit of value in this as the extra half-mile should suit.
