Verdict

Paddy Partridge won on his hurdling debut at Uttoxeter in July last year but is facing different conditions under a penalty here and preference is for BOLLIN FELIX. Tim Easterby's charge finished third in soft ground behind the progressive Storm Brig over C&D last time and the runner-up Bunclody has since franked the form with a win. Shadows Lengthen finished a long way behind in that race and he's hard to fancy as a consequence, but a bad blunder cost Flicka's Witness at Bangor last time and he's capable of better with a clear round.
