Verdict

This could cut up badly as both Dark Energy and Raajih were scheduled to take part in the 5.10 here yesterday. DOUBLE ROSS was sixth in a valuable handicap hurdle at Haydock in May when last seen and has only had two runs over fences. He has obvious scope and should get off the mark over the larger obstacles here with a clear round as Attaglance, a very useful staying hurdler, has been a massive disappointment in chases. Glen Lord won a maiden point-to-point in 2009 but would need something to happen to the principals to get involved.
