Verdict

Sergeant Thunder has joined the Nicholls yard since winning a bumper last year. But he showed his inexperience when well beaten on his hurdling debut in January and ROCK ON ROCKY looks a safer bet. The latter found only Such A Legend too good over track and trip recently and is taken to open his account in this. Morning Reggie finished closer at this track last time while King's Opus is another likely to improve. All Riled Up has found a bit of form of late and could prove best of the rest.
