Verdict

Mighty Stowaway has had four starts over fences with his best effort coming when 17-length second on heavy ground at Ballinrobe though he's been running in better company. His stable companion Motcomb Street has shown a bit of potential over hurdles despite being bred for the Flat. DEBURRAFIELD has a much stouter pedigree and though he failed to make his mark in bumpers he has done better over timber finishing runner-up twice. He gets the vote to make a successful chasing bow as Punches Cross hasn't shown much aptitude for jumping fences in his two starts, though his stable remain in top form.
