Verdict

Solid Strike won a similar class race a year ago at Hexham and is back on the same mark. The Horsechesnut completed a double over fences last spring and all of his subsequent runs have been over hurdles. Laverock Lass jumped poorly when well beaten into third at Leicester while Gordon Elliott's ROBIN DEUZ POIS showed only moderate form when trained in the UK. However, the latter had a spin over hurdles in December and is on such a lowly mark over fences that he's handed the vote. Veauce De Sivola is only 2lb higher than when last successful though the main threat will probably come from Definite Wisdom, who scored with a bit in hand at Musselburgh and has only been raised 5lb. Rising Marienbard could find the ground too testing.
