Verdict

A progressive chaser in 2010, it's a shame to see Putney Bridge dropped to this level back over hurdles after a disappointing comeback at Sandown last month. RAILWAY RICO looks a safer option as he finished well clear of the opposition in a similar event at Stratford a week ago and is open to further improvement. Westlin' Winds should have his say given he was beaten less than a length when last tried in this grade, while Ockey De Neulliac won a couple of plating races over hurdles back in November and has scored over fences since. Dr Darcey looks up against it judged on his recent poor efforts.
