Verdict
Harry Whittington sent Saturday's Premier Hurdle winner Rouge Vif on the long journey north to Newcastle in January to justify the odds in a 2m novices' hurdle, and he looks set for another winner today in the shape of JAMMY GEORGE. Proven on a soft surface this 6yo has shown a solid level of form over hurdles and despite being untested over this kind of trip his pedigree offers plenty of hope that he'll stay (dam was an unraced half-sister to the staying chaser Mumbles Head). The Nigel Twiston-Davies trained Juge Et Parti is the most logical danger on form and official ratings.
  1. Jammy George
  2. Juge Et Parti
  3. Uptown Harry
