Verdict

Thomas Crown's recent win arrived in a point-to-point and he's probably best watched on Rules debut. 10-y-o Mr Lando has come to fences late but is an adaptable sort as a career record featuring wins over hurdles, Turf and All-weather on the level reveals. He should be in the mix off this mark. Paddy Brennan takes the mount on Boutan for the third successive time and the mare is one to note if taking to larger obstacles as she's performing quite consistently over hurdles. However, this isn't a strong race and ex-Irish GAME LINE, only a 5-y-o and having a first run for Christian Williams, seems sure to prove a better chaser than hurdler as this early move to fences implies.
