Verdict

WESTCOASTINFORMANT improved from his first start over hurdles when runner-up at Wexford last month and he can go one better this time around with further improvement to come. Rexem is feared most going up in trip after his promising debut over timber, while stablemate of the selection Ask Philip helps to give Gordon Elliott a strong hand in the race.
