In depth

Verdict

Are They Your Own has won under Rules but it was only a hunter chase in which he was successful at Cheltenham last month. Get Rhythm has won a point-to-point so the switch to fences should suit the Bangor maiden hurdle winner but TIGER TREK can take advantage of this slight drop in class after fair placed efforts at Southwell and Worcester. Earls Fort won three times over hurdles last year so is no forlorn hope on his chasing bow.
