Verdict

The longer trip and heavy ground had started to take its toll on CREEPY when he fell two out in a Grade 2 at Haydock last month. But he'd earlier finished a 13-length fourth to Coneygree in a similarly well-contested event at Cheltenham and a repeat of that form would make him hard to beat here. Whisky Yankee should strip fitter for his run in a Wolverhampton jumpers' bumper and was second on his hurdling debut at Stratford in November while there should be more to come from Wetherby fourth Minella Fifty. Mister Bricolage disappointed at the same track last month, however, and Bally Rone is probably more interesting arriving off the back of wins in a point-to-point and a bumper.
