The Sportsman's Verdict
GLEN ROCCO was unlucky to bump into a fairly handicapped horse when second in a competitive affair here on Boxing Day, and can defy a 3lb rise to score for Nick Gifford. The step up in trip should suit the eight-year-old, and a handicap at the Cheltenham Festival could be considered if he wins or performs well in this contest given his overall profile. Barney Dwan may improve for the application of cheekpieces, while the consistent Ballykan is also noted.
