Verdict

CREST may be best equipped in what doesn't strike as a strong contest. He went well for a long time at Clonmel in his previous run before a late error rather scuppered his hopes. Mydor appears to be better over timber and, in any case, was out of form at Haydock when last seen so comes here with something to prove. Bright Tomorrow was pulled up around here latest and has something to find on form while Kentucky Star makes his chase debut having failed to complete in previous two hurdles runs. Manuka has jumping concerns to overcome while Surrogate Lad has been tailed off in two trips to the racecourse.
