Verdict

Andrew Parker's SUPER ALLY is switching between fences and hurdles to good effect. He won over the larger obstacles here last month and shouldn't be fazed by this longer trip so looks the one to beat. Dawn Ride is better known as a chaser and may be best watched on his first run over timber for four years, but Newcastle winner Forcefield warrants respect and Dickie Henderhoop was well backed over 2m4f at Carlisle last time. Hathamore showed a bit more over fences at Sedgefield last time and may be best of the rest.
