Verdict

LIGHT BRIGADE failed to land a blow on his Flat debut at Listowel last month, but that spin will have blown away the cobwebs and, a progressive novice hurdler last season, he may well have more to offer this season. Magic Tricks wasn't disgraced last time and looks the pick of the Gordon Elliott-trained trio, while Homme D'un Soir is worth a second look, along with Feelgood Island.
