Verdict

AP McCoy rode Point Blank on his hurdling debut at Newton Abbot but the champion gets off the JP McManus-owned gelding here to partner newcomer ALL THE WINDS. A winner twice on the Flat in Germany, the six-year-old got off the mark in this country at Kempton in November and could easily be good enough to make a winning start over timber. Erdeli was found wanting under a big weight in a handicap at Towcester last time but should do better back in novice company and makes more appeal than Southwell third Tiradia. Jim Tango has shown some ability but is likely to need this after more than a year on the sidelines.
