Verdict

Reverting to novice company and dropping back down in trip, Idilico shouldn’t be far away as he was far from disgraced when making his handicap debut at Haydock. But HUMBLE HERO, a dual winner on the Flat came up against a smart novice in Bright Forecast when making his hurdles now at Leicester and this quick surface is ideal. Back On The Lash was beaten 13 lengths when third at Worcester in October but the fourth won on his next start and is now rated 121. Takbeer is also returning form a short break and was well beaten when falling at Kempton in November.
