Verdict

EARCOMESTHEDREAM is a regular visitor here and won over course and distance in December. He's only 5lb higher today and showed enough at Chepstow on his latest start over hurdles to suggest he can find another race before the end of the season. Hazy Bay was second to Bravo Riquet over track and trip in December before finishing third at Plumpton and should be thereabouts again but a bigger danger may be Tarabela, who bounced back to form at Taunton earlier this month. Duneen Point was successful over 2m4f at Fontwell on Boxing Day while Heezagrey could feature from near the foot of the weights if in the mood.
