Verdict

Bumper winner POTTERMAN put in a good performance in finishing thrid on hurdling debut at Kempton last month and he is taken to get off the mark at the second time of asking over hurdles. Slightly softer ground forecast today looks likely to suit and he can take this at the chief expense of Huntingdon fourth Doux Pretender who failed to settle last time out and should benefit from the likely stronger pace in this contest. Brianstorm ran well on hurdling debut and is taken to claim third on this occasion.
  1. Potterman
