In depth

Verdict

Robbie boasts a win and a place from two starts over hurdles here. But he's probably better over fences nowadays and may be a few pounds too high. Pas Trop Tard continues to fight a losing battle with the handicapper while Hidden Justice didn't show much on his reappearance but McIlhatton ran well for a long way at Kempton following a break and can't be ignored. CENTASIA failed to give 6lb to Blue Button at Exeter last month but the winner was only beaten a neck in a Listed race at Taunton subsequently so the form looks better now than at did at the time. She may well be good enough here given she's only had two runs over timber. Fellow novice Elmore Back may be best of the rest.
