Verdict

Willie Mullins has won this twice in the past three years and Blood Cotil is certain to attract support on his handicap debut. A Grade 2 winner over timber at Auteuil in May, he was cantering along on his chasing debut at Cork three weeks ago before falling at the second last. Sea Light is another who will be strong in the market after completing a hat-trick and though raised 11lb for his latest success he still looks on a fair mark. Tony Martin has snapped up Paul Carberry for QUICK JACK and the combination can prove good enough. Twice a winner on the Flat last year, he's also won his last two over hurdles including a novice handicap at Cheltenham in November. Gilgamboa is a progressive type who has only had three runs but ploughed through the Punchestown mud to land a handicap on New Year's Eve. Snake Eyes represents Nicky Henderson and is making his handicap debut from a lowly mark while Blacklough could reward each-way support after just failing to concede lumps of weight to Hop In at Navan.
