Verdict

Ethics Girl won her share on the Flat and is an interesting recruit to hurdling as is Jonjo O'Neill's Finding Your Feet, though this doesn't look the easiest of starts. John Ferguson runs Jameel, who made a fair debut at Sedgefield, and bumper winner House Party, who could prove best of the pair. Makari showed a bit of potential in bumpers for Noel Wilson and has joined Nicky Henderson so he's one to watch but Pinotage looked as though he would do better over further when staying on at Market Rasen. INVETISSEMENT was last seen finishing a close third in the 2011 Ebor and has a couple of runs over timber at a very high level behind him. His stable have no problems getting one ready after a break and he looks the one to be on.
