Verdict

Sparkling Tara was placed a couple of times in the autumn but will probably need this. Gin Cobbler's recent victory came against novice hunters while Hawaii Klass has a bit to find if he is overturn Carlisle running with Tutchec. TOPLANDER will hopefully have learned a bit from his chasing bow at Kelso, where he ran well for a long way. He gets a tentative vote at the likely odds as Smart Act's confidence may have suffered following a heavy fall at Catterick.
