Verdict

Ile De Re was a decent stayer on the Flat and made a satisfactory debut over hurdles when third at Aintree. He should improve for the longer trip but DRAMATIC DUKE caught the eye under a considerate ride on his first run over timber at Huntingdon and can put that experience to good use here. A P McCoy's presence in the saddle suggests he's the pick of Jonjo O'Neill's trio. Open Hearted won a Ludlow bumper last month but fell on his hurdles bow at Uttoxeter and just as interesting are Boston Blue, fourth over shorter here last month, and hurdling newcomer Cross Of Honour.
