The Sportsman's Verdict
NORMAL NORMAN has shown plenty of potential in two starts over hurdles and has been found a nice opening to continue on the upward trajectory. He made mistakes at the last two flights at Market Rasen when winning last time and will need to jump better here, but he clearly has an engine and remains unexposed. Return Ticket ran well for a long way on his Carlisle comeback three weeks ago, while Sporting Press is another to note.
