The Sportsman's Verdict
I'M WISER NOW has always been held in high regard by connections and having shaped like a horse for the future in three bumper outings last season, a step up in trip on his hurdles bow should be right up the Presenting five-year-old's street. Skiddaw Valleys performed consistently over timber last season and has to be respected with experience in his favour, while Lake Baikal looks an interesting newcomer in the green and gold silks of JP McManus and is a half-brother to Tell No One, a Grade 3 chase winner in France.
