Verdict

How's My Friend, only beaten a length in a handicap over 3m1f here 11 day ago, is never going to get a better chance to open his account under Rules despite the drop in distance. He makes more appeal than Donald McCain's Realignment, who was beaten in a seller over hurdles at Hexham earlier this month and appears to be regressing. But JOCK WILKINSON is a rare runner here for Charlie Swan and, having changed hands for £60,000 in the November sales, should start to show his worth now tackling fences as he's already been placed between the flags. Border Station has made the frame in four of his five starts over fences but is still a maiden under Rules after 15 attempts.
