In depth

Verdict

Roc De Prince popped-up at 20/1 when scoring at Aintree on his hurdling debut. This is his first start since June and he has a penalty to overcome. PULPITARIAN proved a disappointment at Musselburgh on a more recent start. But he's worth another chance on the strength of a debut third at Aintree in October behind Garde La Victoire, who has since gone in again. Bumper winner King Of Strings makes his hurdling debut as does Bassett Road, a four-time winner on the Flat, though fellow debutant Muharrer is rated much higher on the level.
