Verdict

Hello George was a tad keen on his hurdling debut over course and distance two weeks ago but still stayed on strongly to score a shade cosily. He has more to do under a penalty today but can't be ignored. Amanto has won on the Flat in Germany and is sure to know what's required while Set List can only improve for his third at Kempton. King's Tempest won a Warwick bumper in March and Hughesie was up against a potentially top-class rival at Ffos Las last time. JOLLYALAN is also interesting as he was sixth in the Champion Bumper at Punchestown in April. McCoy takes over the reins here and a winning start over hurdles is on the cards.
