Verdict

LIGHT FLICKER has scored twice over fences since his runner-up effort over hurdles at Exeter in November so might be worth siding with off a mark only 2 lb higher than the one he defied at Uttoxeter last month. Bitasweetsymphony was a lot better than the result at Carlisle last time and remains of interest. Megaudais Speed and last year's runner-up The Very Thing are also on the shortlist.

  1. LIGHT FLICKER (IRE)
