Verdict

See Double You is part of the family at Ronan McNally's Irish yard and the remarkable 16-y-o now crosses the Irish Sea in an attempt to achieve back-to-back successes after landing a Roscommon hurdle last week. He looks very well treated off 10-1 if transferring that level to fences. The likes of Little Windmill, Elkstone and Atomic Rumble are consistent sorts who win in their turn and Battle Of Ideas looks to have improved for wind surgery. ISKABEG LANE is another solid performer who is usually in the mix and went close over trip and ground last time at Market Rasen. He's up 2lb but still looks fairly treated and receives the vote in a race of many chances.
