Verdict
A good renewal of a race that Paul Nicholls has won twice in the last four years and he comes here with another excellent chance to land this prize with SIR PSYCHO. Conditions won’t be a problem as he ploughed through the mud to beat his elders when winning at Exeter on New Year’s Day. French raider Rockadenn adds an interesting twist to the race although he’s hard to get a handle on switching back to hurdles. Gerolamo Cardano arrives on the back of a good effort in this grade at Cheltenham last time and he’s respected along with Colonel Manderson who is thrown in at the deep end for his hurdles debut; any positive market vibes should be noted.
  1. Sir Psycho
  2. Gerolamo Cardano
  3. Colonel Manderson
