Verdict

Llama Farmer looked one to follow after winning a Haydock novice hurdle last season but little has gone right since and he returns after a lay-off here. It's Like That wasn't disgraced when fourth to Keenan's Future at Bangor last month and Global Flyer has been placed in three of his four starts over fences, though doesn't have much in the way of pace. French Ties stays well but his confidence will hardly have been boosted by unseating his rider over hurdles at Southwell 10 days and he may struggle to get the better of DUKE OF ORMOND. Anna Brooks' charge won at Market Rasen in February and was beaten less than a length at Lingfield on his latest start - he is only 5lb higher here.
