In depth

Verdict

BUXOM wasn't disgraced in one of these at Kempton at the end of last month. She won a couple of bumpers at the start of her career and has been successful on soft ground over hurdles so this deeper surface should suit and she has little to beat here. Exemplary won a handicap hurdle at Wincanton on Boxing Day and may be the danger, though he's been well beaten twice on Polytrack since. King Rolfe hasn't shown much since winning a maiden hurdle at Stratford in October and Johnnys Legacy is only a plater but House Party did win a bumper in 2012.
