In depth

Verdict

Buckled has won twice over hurdles around here while Arthurs Secret gained one of his two hurdles victories on the track and ran well on his return in October. Mighty Thunder won a Perth handicap at this level in October, when Niceandeasy pulled up, and ran better than his finishing positions suggests in a better event at Aintree last time. THECLOCKISTICKING (NAP) had been chasing before reverting to hurdles in a Class 2 handicap at Kempton where he was only beaten 4 lengths over a trip too short. He looks to have the quality to see these off with his rider's claim a bonus.
