Verdict

RED NOT BLUE is jumping fences late in life but was a decent handicap hurdler and jumped well on his chase debut at Hereford when winning eased-down by nine lengths with Roses Legend a further eight lengths back in fourth. He can win again getting 7lb from Shoegazer, who found handicap company too much to handle at Perth last time but had previously won twice, also at Hereford. A market move for Dais Return on his reappearance would be significant but Danimix doesn't look a natural chaser and Betavix was tailed off on his reappearance over hurdles.
