Nothing really takes the eye here but another chance is offered to GIZZIT who reverts to timber after three outings over fences. The move may be appreciated by the George inmate as his hurdling mark is now 6lb less than when last seen over the smaller obstacles back in April and he acts on any ground. Lady Bridget usually runs her race, will receive good assistance from the saddle from Patrick Corbett and hails from a small yard that enjoyed a winner at Ffos Las on Friday. Mezzanisi has yet to produce his Flat ability over timber for Peter Bowen, whilst Togiak and Keen Eye have yet to show any sparkle either. However, both represent high profile yards and it would be dangerous to desert either in such a modest contest.
