This is a very weak finale as most of these would struggle in a seller. Our Phylli Vera has been placed a couple of times but has never threatened to win a race over hurdles. She should be thereabouts, however, while No Routine and Mariet may still have a bit of scope. Pagham Belle was second at Chepstow three runs ago and Tom Sang started favourite here two weeks ago, though was beaten when ploughing through the last. GALIOTTO hasn't raced over hurdles since September last year but had form in better races than this and has been in action on the Polytrack this year. He must be worth an interest against ordinary rivals.
