Verdict

Silver Eagle came unstuck in a Listed handicap over a longer trip at Cheltenham last time but has every chance on earlier form, despite a double penalty. A Tail Of Intrigue was finishing second for the third time in a row on his hurdles bow at Uttoxeter and will be winning soon but Crookstown was beaten a long way over 2m at the same track on the same day and looks worth opposing again. GLOWINGINTHEDARK looks the one to beat on his third to the highly-rated Oscar Fortune at Carlisle with Kielan Woods taking off 5lb, though winning pointer Knockanrawley is worth monitoring if attracting market support. The latter may be a better long-term prospect than Southwell runner-up Speckled Door.
