Verdict

Man With Van was beaten less than a length by KNOCKANRAWLEY at Hexham 12 days ago and is 7lb better off. But Kim Bailey's grey had to overcome trouble in-running to score and has always looked the type to make a chaser. He can confirm running with the runner-up and land this, though Kilbree Kid won three times over hurdles and is a dual point-to-point winner so should also be worth following. Diyala was also decent over hurdles but she doesn't really have a pedigree that suggests she'll enjoy fences.
