Verdict

The market should indicate if the hurdles debutant Referee is fancied on his first run for nearly 600 days. He is bred to be a decent horse but has obviously been difficult to train. Shareef Star was the best of these on the Flat but ran poorly on his hurdles bow, so despite having to concede weight all round Catterick winner ASHUTOR is the choice. He tired late on last time so may do better now the tongue-tie is applied. Jimmy The Digger won a 2018 bumper well enough and things didn't go his way in two hurdles starts after. He may win races but has it to prove here following a 15-month break.
