Verdict

Hillview Boy was placed three times on the Flat last year but looks a bit long in the tooth to start a new career over hurdles. Imjoeking should go close having started favourite when second on his hurdling debut at Carlisle in November while AP McCoy partners Irish raider Shanroe Secret on his debut under Rules, though he had trouble with the fences in point-to-points. HALO MOON won a Towcester bumper by nine lengths on his racecourse debut. Well-bred, he may need further than 2m in time but should still have enough to land this.
