Verdict

Victor Hewgo has taken well to fences and was just caught by Cheltenham-bound Holywell over course and distance 10 days ago. Despite his penalty, he'll be tough to beat again but COWARDS CLOSE could flourish now tackling fences as he's already a winner between the flags. He was well backed over hurdles here on his reappearance and can recoup losses now. My Dads Horse was a long way behind Victor Hewgo over a shorter trip here in January and Perfect Candidate was due to run at Newbury yesterday.
