Verdict

Up Helly Aa King makes his chasing debut after going close over hurdles at Ayr when Magic Of Milan ran below par. The latter also debuts over fences as does point-to-point winner Thomas Do. Along Came Theo was no match for a much higher rated winner when runner-up at Catterick on his chasing bow but should be in the mix again while VASCO D’YCY (NAP) is another to consider. Progressive over hurdles in 2017, he ran well for third racing off a 10lb lower mark back over fences at Ayr on his reappearance and Julia Brooke’s charge may just edge this.
