Verdict
There are a few potential improvers in this who may appreciate the trip and the chance to go handicapping. However, PACK YOUR BAGS is hard to oppose given his current form over fences and a hurdles mark in line with older form. The one question is stamina, but he is worth another try at this trip with conditions drying out. Oisin James looks a big danger judged by a promising reappearance and an attractive mark. Ask Heather has been in good form whilst point-to-pointing and will improve for the underfoot conditions
