Verdict

Raheenwood has won three times over hurdles and there's no reason why he shouldn't make a chaser, a remark that also applies to winning bumper and hurdler Rising Time, who has always looked as though she'd do better when faced with the bigger obstacles. JAKROS is likely to start a short-priced favourite here and though not looking the most natural of jumpers on his chasing bow at Gowran in September he was still in the lead when falling three out. Hopefully he'll have learnt from the experience and can gain his first success over fences.
