SEE WHAT HAPPENS is hard to oppose in this. A winner over hurdles in 2011, Martin Todhunter's charge made a respectable return to action at Wetherby in October when runner-up to African Broadway on his chasing debut. That's the best form on offer and he's preferred to Hollins, who shares the same handicap mark as the selection but arrives badly out of sorts. My Idea should improve on a third at Newcastle and looks the biggest threat unless Gin Cobbler can step up on his earlier efforts over hurdles given he's subsequently won a point-to-point.
