Verdict

Bumper winner Grandioso has been a little disappointing so far over timber and could be worth opposing again. Unex Degas is an interesting newcomer to hurdles, while A Hit Is A Hit will have needed his latest run in a Doncaster handicap and had form over this trip in Ireland. Dj Milan still had every chance when falling at Towcester last month while Family Three showed promise at Ffos Las, but this better ground should suit KOULTAS KING and Tim Vaughan's front-runner can open his account on this sharpish track.
