Verdict

The unbeaten record of RENDL BEACH came to end at Cheltenham in October when he could only manage third. However, runner-up Our Vinnie has since won a Grade 3 event in Ireland so the form is decent and Rebecca Curtis' charge looks a cut above these. Benefit Of Youth fell in the above race at Cheltenham and He's The Daddy ran out at this track when Toby Lerone finished a well-beaten fourth. Bumper winner Mount Hope made a distinctly modest start over hurdles at Bangor last time so High Ho Sheriff looks the biggest threat to the selection on his debut second at Ffos Las last month.
