Verdict

SMITHSCORNER shaped well to land a handicap hurdle on stable debut here last month and can follow up in this competitive contest off a 6lb higher mark. Michael Kennedy's six-year-old can once again hold off the challenge of the potentially well-handicapped Arctic Light who ran the selection to 1¾L last month. Banjo and Bye Bye O Bye could go well at a price.
