Verdict

Wazowski wasn’t beaten far behind a subsequent winner at Bangor last month but has won only one of his 19 starts. Pixiepot is 0-13 over timber but has been second six times so wouldn’t be winning out of turn. Wind Of Hope was first past the post over course and distance on Boxing Day and, though subsequently demoted, holds Fiddler's Flight and Sory on that run. MAIN FACT hadn’t shown much before scoring over 2m1f here in November and has gone up 8lb since. But he did it easily that day and should have more to offer after only four runs over hurdles.
