Verdict

SUPREME PRESENT will likely start odds-on on the back of a hat-trick of hurdle victories. He carries a double penalty but won as he liked at Stratford last time and has nothing to fear from the others with experience over hurdles. Karl Marx has won a seller over timber and Minella Web is a point-to-point winner, but hurdling debutant My Direction may prove a bigger threat having placed in both starts on the all-weather last year.
