Verdict

Mike Sowersby's string are in red hot form and Tennessee Bird can be competitive off his light racing weight but ASHCOTT BOY produced a career best at Worcester recently, and we'll take Neil Mulholland's gelding to have built upon that performance. Missionaire will reoppose off 3lb better terms and Tony Carroll's charge may have gone close had he not flattened the last flight. Annelko was third in a maiden hurdle at Fakenham last month and while he has been beaten since, the form of the race is working out well. Sugar Hiccup won a handicap on the Flat for Clive Cox a couple of years ago and though she's shown nothing over hurdles, the booking of Tony McCoy is enough to make punters take notice.
