Pulled up on all three starts over fences to date including over 3m5f at Fakenham (good-to-soft) at the start of this month. Others make more appeal in this event.

Returning from nearly three years off the track when finishing 76L last of ten in a handicap hurdle over an extended 2m7f at Newcastle (heavy) in November. Others hold stronger claims from out of the handicap on debut over fences.

13 race maiden finished a well held 13th in a handicap hurdle over an extended 2m7f at Uttoxeter (soft) at the end of December 2018. Others make more appeal from out of the handicap on chase debut following more than a year off the track.

Betting

Forecast

Cudgel (3/1), Ask Paddy (5/1), Sammylou (11/2), Mountain Hawk (6/1), L'attendue (7/1), Geordielandgangsta (15/2), Taaffes Castle (12/1), Multipede (12/1), Trimmers Lane (16/1), Misdflight (16/1), Witham (20/1), Zakety Zak (33/1), K O Kenny (33/1), Hediddodinthe (40/1), Stormy Reception (50/1)

Verdict

GEORDIELANDGANGSTA showed ability when finishing in the frame over hurdles last time out and he is taken to make a winning debut over fences stepping up in distance. The selection is less exposed than most of his rvials and he can get the better of Cudgel who can claim second on his return to chasing while third place can go to top weight Mountain Hawk who is stepping up in trip and dropping in grade.
