Finished third, beaten 4L in a competitive 3m1f handicap hurdle at Huntingdon (good-to-soft) in January. Slightly below par when fifth at Chepstow (good-to-soft) subsequently and remains of interest in this event.

Held in three starts since placing second, beaten 10L on good-to-firm going over an extended 2m3f at Doncaster in early December. Handicap mark is gradually dropping and market support would be notable.

14/1

Sole victory in 17 career starts came in a good-to-soft ground novice hurdle at Fontwell (2m3f) in February 2017. Failed to build on a promising second at Market Rasen (good-to-soft) when finishing sixth at Newbury (good-to-soft) last time out.

12/1

Winner of his first two starts including hurdling debut at Taunton (2m3f, good) in 2017. Finished a fair sixth over an extended 3m at Haydock (good) last month when returning from a break and likely to have improved for the run.

Betting

Forecast

Burrows Edge (7/4), Honest Vic (11/2), My Way (7/1), Star Of Lanka (7/1), Townshend (10/1), Shoal Bay (12/1), Crystal Lad (14/1), Mahlervous (16/1), Wicked Willy (20/1), Higgs (25/1)

Verdict

BURROWS EDGE can defy top weight to take a competitive looking handicap hurdle. Representing a leading yard the selection ran well on his return to action last time out and can go one better here with Mahlervous, a winner on his most recent start capable of claiming second ahead of My Way who is making his first appearance in handicaps.
