Verdict

Robin's Command beat Hotgrove Boy at Kelso in April but the latter is now 23lb better off and Rose Dobbin's charge found Morning Time half-a-length too good at Hexham last month, though is a couple of pounds better off now. Sure Thing has finished second in two of his three starts over fences but has shown his best form over longer trips. OWEN NA VIEW made a very promising chase debut at Market Rasen and can only improve. He's potentially well treated on his form over hurdles so gets a tentative vote.
