Verdict

The form that GREANETEEN showed on his debut at Sandown could hardly have worked out any better with plenty of winners to come out of the race and he joined their ranks when scoring in good style at Exeter. He has the scope to go on from that run and has already earned a handicap mark of 134. On The Slopes the other runner with a penalty should give him a good test though despite his form not quite being at the same level as the Nicholls inmate. The Flying Sofa hasn’t been seen since running in the Champion Bumper (a race that has proved a rich source of novice hurdle winners) and he should be noted the market along with I’d Better Go Now and the eye-catcher from Wincanton Hymn And A Prayer.
  1. Greaneteen
  2. On The Slopes
