Verdict

NELSON RIVER has displayed plenty of ability on the level, particularly in recent times when winning at Wolverhampton and runner-up at Pontefract. Representing the shrewd Tony Carroll stable, he will know his job on his first start over timber and gets the vote to edge out Nebuchadnezzar, who is rated slightly lower in the opposite code but hails from a yard that enjoy plenty of success in this sphere. Bold Reason could prove best of those with NH experience.

Verdict

NEBUCHADNEZZAR stands out here, a likeable type on the Flat who has both the pedigree and connections to do better in this sphere, so he's fully expected to make a winning start at the expense of Bold Reason and fellow hurdling newcomer Nelson River.
