Verdict

Dark Lover may have been a fortunate winner at Cheltenham as leader Balder Success was travelling strongly when falling two out. We'll take him on under a penalty with easy Towcester scorer CLARET CLOAK, who looks a natural over fences and can go on to better things. Lord Of House and Manyriverstocross were both very useful hurdlers and should pay their way over fences if taking to the larger obstacles but Reverend Green looks outclassed and returns from a prolonged absence.
