Verdict

WHITSUNDAYS has won each of his last two outings and can notch the hat-trick by taking this novices' handicap chase. Donald McCain's charge didn't always convince with his jumping when winning at Kelso last month and cheekpieces may help sharpen him up in that regard. Starlight Court has been running well enough over hurdles to suggest he can claim second upped in trip for this chasing debut while Midnight Gem, runner-up at Ludlow last month and another chasing debut can take third.
