Verdict

THE BIG GETAWAY was too good for his rivals in a bumper at Punchestown last month and he is the one to beat here on his first attempt at hurdles. Cobbler's Way has also scored in a bumper but found just one horse better than him last time out and that may be the case once again here, while January Jets ran well on his debut under Rules when he was second in a big runner field at Fairyhouse so include him in your calculations here.
  1. The Big Getaway
  2. Cobbler's Way
  3. January Jets
