Verdict
WOLFOFALLSTREETS continues in good form winning three of his last four starts over hurdles and can continue his winning streak in this contest. The gelding by Kalanisi has improved 18lb since January the first and with jockey Adam Short the pair have struck up quite a combination. Chalky White, the mount of Rachael Blackmore got off the mark at the fourth time of asking when landing a Thurles handicap hurdle over a similar trip earlier this month off an 8lb lower mark and can give a good account once again. Scheu Time, a winner at Cork in December and the Gordon Elliott-trained Texard appear capable of competing for minor honours.
