Verdict

Big Occasion won a minor race at Chepstow before producing a shocker at Huntingdon where he was soon done with after pulling hard. He'll need to bounce back here as the opposition looks quite strong. South Leinster is another who performed badly after an earlier impressive success and he's likely to do better over further. Russe Blanc, Granville Island and Tiger Maguire are all bumper winners who have yet to produce the goods over hurdles so this can go to CROWNING JEWEL, another winning bumper whose close third to Bourne at Catterick in December was given a massive boost by the winner at Ascot on Saturday.
