      Verdict

      Invicta Lake, five times winner over hurdles, was beaten a long way on his only start over fences back in 2015. Frank N Fair completed a course and distance double last month but went up 14lb and couldn't handle better company and a longer trip on his latest visit. CLONDAW RIGGER has improved with every run over fences and gained a spectacular 18 length victory at Hereford a couple of weeks ago. Not surprisingly, the assessor has had his say with a 15lb rise but that doesn't look enough to prevent a quick double. Leo Luna looks a threat as he has been competing at a higher level and led for a long way over 3m4f here last time but Act Now ran poorly on his chasing debut at Wincanton on Boxing Day, though this is more like his trip.
