This looks competitive and from a shortlist of Jokers Legacy, St Killian's Run and TISFREETDREAM we will side with the last mentioned. The selection was an eyecatcher last time out when he ran third behind Officier De Reserve. This drop in trip is a big plus for him, he is in great heart and although he does find one too good more often than he should, nonetheless he looks to hold solid claims today. Jokers Legacy has got some good bumper form but he is returning from a lengthy break here and he is jumping a hurdle in public for the first time so he is not one to be plunging on at a short price. St Killian's Run has got some fair point-to-point form and anything Paul Nicholls sends to post in these type of events has to be considered. He could go well, but the market will be a guide to his chance. Alan King has two runners in this race and of the pair Midnight Sail makes most appeal. But we are quite sweet on Tisfreetdream here and he is put forward as the one to beat.
