Verdict

WHISKEY IN THE JAR won with real authority last time out at Uttoxeter by 32 lengths turning in a polished round of jumping and escapes a penalty here for that win and that certainly tips the scales in his favour. Dashing Perk reverts to novice company after disappointing a little in a tough handicap and he may well find himself more at home here. Benechenko looks to need further than this 2m4f that he runs over here based on his runs so far with Aptly Put a likely improver on his second hurdles start.
