Verdict

GETAWAY DRIVER seems to have taken time to come to himself over hurdles and his last two runs have delivered notable progress. He wasn't beaten at all far when fourth at Market Rasen last time, his yard remains in good heart and this looks a good opportunity on a track that should suit. Osmosia has disappointed the last twice over fences and reverting to hurdles looks a sensible move. Her last two runs over timber read well in the context of this contest and Timmy Murphy looks an interesting and good booking. Spirit D'Armor looks in with a shout off topweigtht and many eyes will be looking to see if handicap debutant Saves Time attracts the cash. Jonjo O'Neill frequently does well with lightly-raced sorts moving into handicap company for the first time.
