Verdict

Saddlers Storm was well beaten in the Champion Novice Chase at Punchestown last April but had landed a hat trick over fences before that. He has every chance on his seasonal bow back at this level but the vote goes to FOR A FINISH. Without a win over hurdles in 10 starts, Eoin Doyle's charge has won three of his five starts over fences including one at this track and there looks to be more to come. King Ali hinted at a return to form over timber last time and is interesting now back chasing, while Indifference Curve is a C&D winner who should go well along with Sizing America.
