Verdict
TWIST is just having his second start for new connections and although his first start was below his best, he rates as the selection based on the form he showed for Nicky Henderson last summer. He should be fitter for that outing at Limerick and might be able to claim his first win in a race not full of likely winners. Roachdale House has been kept fit racing on the Flat but he has plenty of useful hurdles form and if running up to his best, may give the selection most to do. Severus Alexander has not set the hurdling world on fire but gets in here off a possibly lenient mark and sustained market support would be interesting.
  1. Twist
  2. Roachdale House
  3. Severus Alexander
