In depth

Verdict

Billy Cuckoo failed to follow-up his Wetherby win when a well beaten third at Market Rasen and Tipsy Dara could only manage fourth last time after scoring at Hexham in October. OIL BURNER gets a chance to show he's more consistent as he won over C&D on his return to action and remains on a decent mark compared to his best rating over hurdles. Shoal Bay Dreamer is another recent winner who failed to cope with a rise in the weights last time though he wasn't beaten far and may figure once again.
