In depth

Verdict

MERCHANT OF DUBAI has only raced twice over hurdles, and was placed on both occasions. He won over 1m6f here in June on the Flat and may have been let in lightly on his handicap debut over timber. Ueueteoti only found one too good again at Kelso last month but Red Eyes came unstuck at Perth after winning at Sedgefield and has been well beaten on the level since. Ballyreesode was pulled up on his UK debut and Any Given Moment returns from a break but Bogside should be thereabouts and Weybridge Light has been in better form this year and should figure again off a low weight.
