Verdict

The Paul Nicholls-trained My Way hasn't so far managed to live up to his reputation and, while it is too soon to be writing him off, he looks short in the betting here. THIRD WIND was a shock winner at Plumpton two starts back but proved that to be no fluke back there since and Richard Johnson's mount is the standard-bearer now. Paint The Dream showed more for the switch to hurdling at Huntingdon on Boxing Day and can lay claims on the place money.
