Verdict

PROSPECT WELLS was surprisingly overturned by Suerte Al Salto at Fontwell last month but should make amends over this longer trip before going on to better things as he was a very useful hurdler. Awaywiththegreys has his first run since finishing tailed off in the Challow Hurdle in December and may not have the same scope as the selection, despite being a couple of years younger. Next Exit has his first start for nine months and tackles fences for the first time but Notarfbad seems likely to pace his way over the larger obstacles and Lauberhorn and Indian Citizen have won over hurdles, but only at a lowly level.
