Verdict

Some Lad finally broke his duck over hurdles earlier this month but looks to have it all to back over fences off an 8lb higher mark. PRINCE TAM has won off higher marks over course and distance in the past and it would be no surprise to see him go close in a fairly uncompetitive affair as Edmund is still 8lb higher than when successful over track and trip in December while this may be a bit short for the returning Sambelucky as well as Silver Steel.
