Verdict

SEE DOUBLE YOU has been revitalised by a spell between the flags, where he won twice, and has completed a double since reverting to hurdles. He has a 4lb penalty for Saturday's Limerick success but his regular partner can claim his 7lb allowance and he still looks well treated. Its All Hush Hush will be tackling this trip for the first time over timber but isn't in the best of form and has enough weight. He finished behind Donttellmother at Navan in March and the latter looks a threat as he's been slowly making his way back following a long lay-off. Namarama ran well at Navan in September and was sent to Kempton for his next run in November where he started favourite but didn't make the expected progress. Pretty Happy isn't on a bad mark though a strike-rate of 1-32 over hurdles offers little encouragement.
