Verdict

Bulls Head is 6lb out of the handicap and was competing in a much lower grade contest and having his first start for new connections when scoring comfortably at Newcastle. He's very lightly raced and should have more progress in him though ONE FOR HARRY looks the logical choice. A winner at this level at Haydock on heavy going in December, he made a bold bid to concede Elusive Theatre 18lb over slightly further here last month and can gain his ninth victory over timber. Adrian Keatley has acquired Notwhatiam and sends him over from Ireland. He last ran over fences and has a couple of runs over hurdles to his credit to suggest he's not making up the numbers. Strong Economy has been chasing without showing much but does have a victory over the course and distance and Richard Johnson takes the ride.
