Verdict

Now Then Charlie is sent over the larger obstacles straight away having won a maiden hurdle at this track last month. He's a half-brother to a chase winner and should give a good account but it could pay to stick with experience and GRANDADS HORSE gets the nod. The latter went close again off today's mark at Market Rasen last time having won at the same track before that and is preferred to Sail And Return, a dual winner over timber last month but a faller on his recent chasing bow. Cock And Hen looks a bigger threat as McCoy takes over the reins after a second at Worcester.
