Verdict

ARAB LEAGUE made it two wins from four starts over timber when scoring here a fortnight ago to land his second novices' hurdle. David Pipe's charge looks up to continuing his progress in handicap company for the first time and gets the nod. Sweet Irony fell on his reappearance in a Grade 2 novices event at Chepstow, but had won his previous two starts earlier in the year and he can figure along with Ange Guerrier, who posted a better effort over these hurdles last time. Dragon's Den is up 10lb for winning at Wincanton last month and recent Sandown fifth Sircozy could prove a bigger threat off his current mark.
