Verdict

Double Eagle looks nicely handicapped over hurdles and was far from disgraced back over the smaller obstacles for the first time in more than a year at Hereford earlier in the month. Terenzium's only two hurdles wins have come at this track and he's invariably in the money here, though this trip probably stretches his stamina so preference is for MONOGRAM. Lightly raced, the top weight hasn't raced since justifying favouritism at Hexham in October but probably isn't badly treated if taking the second as a reliable guide and he shouldn't have any problem with the extra yardage here. Mtpockets was well ahead of Petroupetrov when fourth at Taunton a fortnight ago and may be best of the rest.
