Verdict

The 2015 bumper won by KNOCKNANUSS has worked out really well and connections must wonder just how highly he could have ranked but for the subsequent absence. That said he looked like he retained most of his ability when winning comfortable here last month and with that in mind he may be good enough to overcome a penalty. The biggest threat is posed by Dan Skelton's Solomon Grey who ran well on his hurdles debut behind a smart novice at Bangor. Flo'sboy Sam and What's Occurring are both someway short of the top pair at present but both have each-way claims and look nice prospects.
