Verdict

STOWAWAY MAGIC was the winner of half of his six outings over hurdles and Nicky Henderson's charge can go one better than when finishing runner-up on chase debut last time out. The yard took this with a subsequent multiple Grade 1 winner last year and the selection can get the better of Peter The Mayo Man who is making his chasing debut today while the long absent Brother Brian, a useful performer over hurdles a few years ago is taken to finish third today.
