Verdict

Jack The Gent has the build of a chaser and has finally got the hang of jumping fences. He's on a hat-trick after a couple of recent wins at Kelso but may struggle to give 14lb to CRY OF FREEDOM if John Ferguson's charge handles the larger obstacles. The latter is a decent handicapper over hurdles and won a decent contest at Taunton before disappointing in the Swinton Hurdle at Haydock 12 days ago. Peaks Of Fire may have been lucky to win at Sedgefield in March and has gone backwards since while Muwalla is probably best watched on his chasing bow as he has a Flat pedigree.
