Verdict

FIRST ACCOUNT looks the obvious starting point as he has answered most questions asked of him so far and he is a serious player now he reverts to hurdles on handy mark. He impressed with a win over fences last week and looks worth following for the time being. Big Bad Dream also has scope for improvement and is suggested as a leading contender in this company. Buckled was an easy winner last time out but has an 11lb higher mark to cope with now, so might just have to settle for a minor role this time.
