In depth

Verdict

OLOFI was easily the best of these over hurdles and Tom George's grey should make a winning debut over the larger obstacles if jumping adequately. Well Hello There may also have a future over fences while Muldoon's Picnic has already shown promise in this sphere, though hasn't raced since the autumn. Most of the others are converts from the point-to-point circuit and difficult to fancy in this grade.
