    In depth

    Verdict

    Shady Oaks and Knockmaole Boy have experience over fences though neither has won and the chasing newcomers are preferred. Point-to-point winner Youracert also won a maiden hurdle last year while Green Or Black landed a handicap over timber last summer and is 5lb higher. Ferrobin has tumbled down the weights since winning a novice hurdle but THIBAULT made a winning reappearance in 2019 when successful in a handicap hurdle at Huntingdon and Kim Bailey’s charge gets the speculative vote.
