BIDOUREY is unbeaten over hurdles, will handle the ground and was a very impressive winner over the course and distance last time out. All in all he has a lot going for him and it could be that the handicapper has under-estimated him. I really like the look of his profile, having had the minimum three starts over hurdles and winning so well last time out and the Pipe yard have a history of priming a horse to run very well in this race. At a bigger price I am going to take a chance on WEST WIZARD as I know the Nicky Henderson yard rated him very highly at the start of last season and it could be that a race like this will see him unleash his full potential. A fast pace on soft ground could be just what he needs. He has finished second on all three starts over hurdles so far, but as a result, he has been allotted a rating of just 132 and that could be very generous.
