Verdict

PENCILFULLOFLEAD may have plenty more to offer and given his decent record fresh this could be a good stepping stone to further glory. Burrows Saint, fourth in the National, presumably has the second Saturday in April and another trip to Aintree as his main target, but he's a force over hurdles and seems sure to go well again having been second in this last year.
