Verdict

Foggy's Wall opened his account over hurdles with a victory in maiden company at Newton Abbot. He should be in the mix once again but ROMAN FLIGHT is just preferred. The latter went close to catching Gifted Leader at Market Rasen last month and can go one better off the same mark. Gores Island was in the lead at Exeter when falling a couple of fences from home and reverts to the smaller obstacles while Victor Leudorum is 7lb higher than when scoring at Worcester in October. Invicta Lake and Ballinalacken found only one too good last time and look best of the remainder.
