Verdict

The majority of these enter the fray out of form so it would be no surprise to see the chaser MISTER FIRST concede weight all round. He hasn't run over hurdles for almost a year but has progressed over fences and, as he's 26lb lower over timber, he looks the one to be on. Yachvili has won three times over hurdles though it's taken him 40 starts and he's been out of form recently while Hu Ha Jo, another with three hurdling victories to his credit, goes best on quicker ground these days. Not So White hasn't had as much experience as some of these but hasn't been going badly and will enjoy the conditions so he can get involved from his lowly mark.
