Verdict

Both the penalised Sonic and the now upped in trip Hexham runner-up Icefall should remain competitive, but their respective connections will be no doubt be very wary of the Irish raider THOSEDAYSAREGONE. Charles Byrnes is 1 from 3 (33%) with his Sedgefield runners since 1999, and this 5yo brings strong bumper and hurdles form into the race. Although beaten 14L by Dorrells Pierji at Listowel last month, that Willie Mullins-trained horse has a fair future over timber, so a reproduction of that form ought to be good enough, with just a minor degree of caution exercised on account of today's faster racing surface.
