Verdict

John Ferguson has suffered a few reversals lately but still has an incredible strike-rate and WHISPERING GALLERY should keep up the good work. A high-class performer on the Flat for Godolphin and twice a winner at Meydan when last seen in 2011, he started odds-on for his hurdling debut at Leicester where he wandered around in the straight due to lack of experience. He's entered in several races at Cheltenham and this looks an ideal stepping-stone. Bobowen has been alternating between hurdles and fences and has won his last two over the smaller obstacles. He's capable of a big effort here as is Deise Dynamo, a very easy winner on his hurdling debut in testing ground before a couple of decent efforts in similar company to this.
