Verdict

Inch Rover's form figures are misleading the last twice as he's been beaten out of sight in both starts over hurdles. His bumper form was promising and it will be interesting to see if the first-time application of a tongue tie and blinkers sharpens his performance. Robin Dickin's lightly-raced ex-Irish pointer, Kitegen, shares topweight with the Longsdon charge, is coming along nicely and shaped well when third to Robbie on his handicap debut at Southwell last time. He's respected but PAIRC NA GCAPALL, who has scored over fences here, was a good second to Whistling Senator over 3m2f when last seen over timber and will go close if repeating that level. Elegant Olive and Folie A Deux are exposed but respected and money for My Mate Vinnie would be noteworthy.
