Verdict

Silverpockets has shown enough ability over timber to suggest he'll be winning a race of this nature soon though he's been well beaten in two starts on the Flat this summer. Hootie has one decent run at Navan to his credit and will be better for his run in May, his first since November. Sam King has the potential to do better and Sparkalark can get involved though he'll probably be suited by further. HARD FOUGHT was having his 13th start over hurdles when a good fourth behind Theos Well at Cork and that should be good enough to land this moderate contest.
