Verdict

Fidelis won a handicap over fences in October and can revert to hurdles on a low mark so should get competitive. Cool Steel started favourite for a handicap at Huntingdon on Boxing Day but ran poorly and needs to get back on track Winning point-to-pointer Hunters Lodge will appreciate the stamina test on his handicap debut as will WESTON LODGE. Tom George's charge, another who has scored between the flags, landed a novice hurdle at Wetherby in November and looks just the type to progress through the ranks. He gets the vote though the very lightly-raced Chac Du Cadran looks a potentially decent staying hurdler and a big weight shouldn't prevent a good run. Night In Milan has been chasing but was in excellent form over hurdles at this time a year ago and is another with chances in an open contest.
