Verdict

LIE FORRIT was easily the best of this trio over hurdles and made a very satisfactory start to his chasing career when beating subsequent winner Blenheim Brook and the progressive The Panama Kid over C&D at the start of the month following a lay-off. Providing that didn't take too much out of him, he can follow up today. Wetherby scorer Moon Indigo may be the one to follow him home as he was trying to give weight away when only fourth to Bold Sir Brian over hurdles here in March and is more likely to see out this longer trip than his old rival.
