Verdict

There are question marks over just about all the runners in this staying handicap hurdle so a chance is taken that MICKIEBLUEEYES will improve a touch for this longer trip. He ran a satisfactory race last time out. Anthony Honeyball's pair of Soulsaver and Double Accord both have claims on the pick of their form, with the former marginally preferred if he can see out this longer event. Fizzlestix and Stonebrigg Legend are others with outside chances.
