Verdict

V Neck is sure to be massively popular in light of his connections - Nicholls, Mcmanus and McCoy - and this one-run, one-win pointer from the Irish scene may simply sweep these rivals away on this hurdling debut for his top yard. However, he's likely to offer little in the way of value and CAROLE'S DESTRIER is a decent alternative and may even represent an each-way option. Promising in bumper company, the Mulholland gelding made an excellent hurdles debut when second to Warden Hill at Kempton over this trip and seems a certain improver. Wither Yenot and Grace And Fortune have both displayed sufficient ability to land a small novice hurdle and add spice to an interesting little heat.
