Verdict

REV IT UP was returning from a lengthy absence when tailed off at Chepstow and that was a much more competitive race than this. Tim Vaughan's novice still has time on his side and, if now fully wound-up, more class than Newcastle second Bit Of A Jig who makes a big step up in distance. Mauricetheathlete has won his fair share over hurdles but tends to reserve his best for Chepstow and fell on his only previous try over fences.
