Verdict

Atlanta Falcon would have a chance in this if Donald McCain has managed to coax him back to his best but both of PADDY THE HARE's victories over hurdles have come at this track and he was placed on all four starts over fences last summer. Richard Newland is capable of getting his charges ready at home so the long absence isn't a worry and he makes more appeal than The Jugopolist, who would probably prefer more give in the ground than he'll get here. Duneen Point was in decent form over hurdles last season but was rated a lot lower than some of his rivals in this.
