Verdict

Hobbs Dream returns to hurdling off an 11lb higher mark than when winning at Taunton in January so a chance is taken on BOBBIE MAGERN. He's yet to win but posted a better effort when last seen at the track and may build on that here. Overlay scored by a neck at Huntingdon last month and has obvious claims off a 4lb higher mark if she handles the soft ground while Destined For Fame can be given a chance off today's mark after three recent outings over the larger obstacles.
