The Sportsman's Verdict
A mid-winter break could be just what FIRST ASSIGNMENT ordered having seen his hat-trick bid end in defeat at Haydock in a Grade 3 contest. However, he was beaten less than two lengths on that occasion by a horse who won the Grade 1 Long Walk Hurdle on his next start and Ian Williams' six-year-old looked a progressive animal in the early part of the season when landing a pair of Cheltenham handicaps. Keeper Hill was back to something like his best when second at Cheltenham in December and is easily the pick of Warren Greatrex's pair in this, while it is interesting that Blaklion reverts to hurdles following a disappointing return in the Becher Chase and he could be well treated off a mark 5lb lower than his chase rating. Lungarno Palace is another to keep an eye on following some smart performances this winter and was second on his only previous outing here.
