Verdict

Dynamite Dollars is the highest rated of these, with an official mark of 132, but his most recent form has been disappointing and a 10lb penalty leaves him vulnerable this afternoon. With that in mind, the preference is for FRENCH CRUSADER, who won a bumper in November and is entitled to improve for his hurdles debut last month. Canelo is another to note and Rocco cannot be discounted either.

Verdict

Plenty of potential for both the short and long term here. FRENCH CRUSADER caught the eye under a considerate ride at this course last month, and he's a likely improver, especially now back on better ground. Canelo may have benefited from a 2-month break and returns with his stable in good form, while Neachells Bridge has shaped well both starts in bumpers to warrant interest now hurdling.
