Verdict

JASSAS won after a break over hurdles at Newcastle in November. He’s had a wind operation since last seen here in January and is an interesting recruit to chasing. Ballyvic Boru was second on his debut over fences at Sedgefield but Little Stevie had nine runs over fences in Ireland without winning, though went close on a couple of occasions. Petapenko disappointed again last time at Southwell but The Road Home has already won a point-to-point and a hurdle race so could go well.
