Verdict

INNER VOICE seems to have solid claims on this novice hurdle and his long trip from Ireland should be rewarded with Caragh Bridge and Timon's Present looking likely to have to settle for minor honours. Although the selection has never won over this far his performances in softer conditions have promised he will stay while his placing effort at Musselburgh in a much hotter race shows he'll handle the quickish ground and his form lines set a fair standard. Caragh Bridge has some weak looking but nevertheless winning form in point to points and because of that we could conclude he will run better over obstacles than in his bumper performance last time out. Connections of Timon's Present will be hoping the switch to hurdling will help to build on some early promise shown in bumpers but this looks a tricky debut with the selection in the field. Don'tsayanything has place claims here if reproducing his best but that's about all he can hope for with Inner Voice looking more than solid.
