Verdict

WELL SHARP is unbeaten over hurdles and is worth sticking with on his handicap debut. He's won both starts over timber with the minimum of fuss and can continue his winning ways if handling the soft ground. Banyan Tree was placed in handicap company on his return to action though his latest win came in a plating race and Titan De Sart makes more appeal despite disappointing at Cheltenham recently. Both Grafite and Quaddick Lake went close on their latest outings and could have a say in proceedings and Paintball has a shout if back to his best.
