Verdict

STELLAR MAGIC has been quite impressive in winning both his hurdle starts at Taunton and, with the latest of those backed up by a good timefigure, he's fancied to defy a double penalty. Lecale’s Article, an expensive buy from the Irish point scene in 2018, is an obvious threat on the back of his Newbury win, while Benny’s Oscar is worth a market check making his Rules debut for a good yard.
