Verdict

Things haven't really gone to plan for FLYING TIGER since his Fred Winter win in 2017 but he returns to hurdling here with conditions likely to suit and off a 1lb lower mark than that Cheltenham win so he is hugely appealing in a contest such as this. Distingo was progressive last term and made an encouraging return so he could continue that upward curve this season. Brianstorm hacked up twice before being found out in a Grade One as a novice and is also a threat on this his seasonal return.
  1. Flying Tiger
  2. Distingo
