Verdict

Top weight WOOD PIGEON'S recent outings have been blighted by jumping issues but he looks capable of taking this contest if putting in a clear round. The selection was a winner at Fakenham last month and showed that he remains in good heart when finishing second at Sedgefield on Thursday. Of his rivals today the veteran Red Danaher won off a higher mark over hurdles recently while Normandy King can register a third placed effort in his last four outings returning from a break today.
