Verdict

GET BACK TO ME has joined Simon Earle since finishing fourth in a bumper at Thurles in November behind a couple of subsequent winners. He's preferred to The Stig, Bad Made and Willpower, who all hail from yards better known for runners on the Flat. No No Mac has shown promise in a couple of starts in soft ground bumpers and Pastoral steps up in trip after a second over 1m5f at Wetherby last time while Ghost Opera ran well enough in one of these events on the Polytrack in January and may figure. The newcomer Masquerade is another to keep an eye on.
