Verdict

ERICHT has proved a trifle disappointing over hurdles, despite winning at Fakenham on his penultimate start. But he won a Grade 2 bumper at Newbury a couple of years ago before finishing sixth at the Cheltenham Festival and is unlikely to be fazed by a switch back to this sphere. He should have too much class for these, though possibly lacks the scope of the likes of Sky Watch, Stage King and Feast Of Fire. King Spirit won a Huntingdon bumper in November and looks best of the rest ahead of Mixologist and the mare Miss Mayfair.
