Verdict
This is a competitive enough race, but still could easily come down to the market principles. THEATREBAR always seems to run his race and probably found the ground too soft in the mud at Uttoxeter last time, despite only being narrowly beaten. The step down in class will help him as well. Gulshanigans proved he was on a workable mark when a very close second on only his second handicap appearance over a longer distance here about a month ago, while Calin Du Brizais is also a player if recapturing his best hurdling form now he has been sent back over the smaller obstacles. 1. Theatrebar 2. Gulshanigans 3. Calin Du Brizais
