In depth

Verdict

Placed six times in nine starts, DOUBLETOILNTROUBLE posted a much better effort on only his second start over fences last month when runner-up to Changing Lanes at Ludlow. This looks no tougher and he can finally get off the mark. Roseini popped up at a big price in a novice hurdle last month but will need to improve on earlier efforts in hunter chases to figure. Royaume Blue went close at Uttoxeter back in January and may figure in this with a repeat.
