Verdict

FIREBIRD FLYER won a chase at Ludlow last month but is equally at home over the smaller obstacles. He went close in a higher grade hurdle race at Chepstow on his penultimate start and a repeat should see him home and dry in this. Benefit Of Youth was placed in a maiden hurdle at Uttoxeter recently and that looks superior form to Bravo Bravo's earlier win in lesser company at Chepstow while Elton Fox was well beaten on his handicap debut back in January and the jury is out on him for now along with Riptide.
