In depth

Verdict

Phase Shift has failed to threaten over fences of late and reverts to hurdling off a 7lb higher mark than last year's win at Ludlow. LILY WAUGH has been placed in both starts over timber and with more to come from Anthony Honeyball's mare, she gets the nod on her handicap bow. Buxom has a shout on her earlier win at Huntingdon and Fine Moment could make the frame again after finishing runner-up in a maiden race at this track. Ussee ran well last time considering she'd been off the track for nearly a year and she could also figure.
