Verdict

The progressive So Fine arrives on the back of a couple of wins and makes his handicap debut. He'll make a bold bid if handling the going, but has yet to race on anything approaching soft ground and GALLOX BRIDGE makes more appeal. He also recorded his double at Uttoxeter in October on a fast surface, but a bumper win in testing ground on his racecourse debut suggests Tim Vaughan's hurdler can produce his best in today's conditions. He's just preferred to No Loose Change, who won a maiden hurdle at Hereford on his latest outing and has to come into the reckoning, while Arctic Wings finished third in similar company at Wetherby recently and he's another to consider along with Chain Of Command.
