Verdict

Plumpton winner Shut The Box is the standard-setter and he looks a likely improver tackling this longer trip. He is carrying a penalty however and he faces a potentially decent newcomer here in MINELLA BEAT. He chased home Battleoverdoyen in a Punchestown bumper 311 days ago and if he takes to hurdles like that rival did, he will take some stopping on debut for new connections. Fu Fu made a positive start over C&D but went backwards next time, ensuring she's got questions to answer, while jumping debutant Neff is one to monitor in the betting.
