Verdict

MONTURGEON hasn't done a great deal wrong over timber so far and had a number of winning hurdlers behind when a close-up fifth to Tetlami in a jumpers' bumper at Kempton on his latest start. Today should finally be his day as he gets 7lb from Oscar Sunset, who won over a longer trip here in November but hasn't raced since. Winning pointer Ballybough Gorta was tailed off on his debut under Rules in December and has something to prove now but Noble Perk has gone close in a couple of bumpers and could make his presence felt.
