Verdict

Jockeyship will be as important as form in this amateur riders' handicap hurdle though Tin Pot Man, Feeling and Dark Energy are among those arriving in good heart. Silver Coaster is usually thereabouts in this grade while Kahsabelle must have some sort of chance but Big Robert is looking a light of former days while Himayna is still awaiting a first success after 27 attempts. PALIO SQUARE has been sent off favourite in his last two starts at Wincanton and Taunton and hasn't been beaten far. Bradley Gibbs has ridden a few winners lately and is good value for his 7lb claim so John Flint's five-year-old can finally get his head in front today over timber.
