Verdict

SLEEP IN FIRST finally came good over track and trip nine days ago when Morning Time was almost 10 lengths away in fourth. He has a penalty to overcome in this but only Avanos of the others has managed a recent win and that was last July and over hurdles. Pistol Basc was only beaten a length over 2m4f here last time, however, while Richo has hinted at ability though is often let down by his jumping and finds little off the bridle. Prince Tam has won four times over fences but never away from Newcastle.
