Verdict

CAPTAIN GEORGE represents a handler with a 7-31 record here in the last five years and looks set to go well in this company back in the National Hunt sphere. He is fit after a decent spell on the Flat, which included a 20-1 success at Wolverhampton in February, and he should be suited by this drying ground under Nick Schofield off a fair mark. Iniesta represents the same yard but might be a bit too high in the handicap, while Goldslinger is another to note.

Verdict

It could be worth siding with GOLDSLINGER, who hasn't cut much ice since switched to hurdles but this 4-time Flat winner will scarcely find better opportunities than this. Iniesta is on a workable mark and is next best ahead of stablemate Captain George and Pension Madness.
