Verdict

IN THE ROUGH has plenty of weight for what he's achieved, having made pretty heavy weather of landing a course and distance maiden hurdle of no depth last time. However, there was little pace on that day and he looks the sort to benefit from a better gallop and is one of the few open to major improvement on what he's done so far. It's not the easiest task on the bare form on this handicap bow but he's almost certainly better than he's hitherto shown. Fintan may be into the veteran stage but has enjoyed a profitable spring and summer, coming smoothly clear here last time. He's still well weighted despite his penalty but that win only came in a seller and this is harder. Cinematique is of interest after posting a first hurdling success at Southwell when repelling the challenge of Edmaaj and should be competitive off a 5lb higher mark. Tenby Jewel, running in decent contests of late, has place claims.
