Verdict

Eye In The Sky made a winning start over hurdles in Norway in October and has switched yards subsequently. But he’s conceding weight to DOMINATEUR, placed in all three outings over timber so far including when third in testing going at Chepstow behind runner-up Smiths Cross, who runs earlier on today’s card. Oliver Sherwood’s charge gets the vote to open his account. Bumper winners New Age Dawning and Destinee Royale go hurdling for the first time and the latter has undergone wind surgery since last in action in April last year but the remainder are harder to recommend.
