Verdict

Fattsota will probably be a false price based on what has been achieved so far. Having looked far from keen on his last start over hurdles, and again on the AW, a chance is taken with ZABEEL STAR. His trainer does well with his small string and the selection boasts a useful turn of foot. A dual winner on the Flat he has struggled, when fancied, in his two previous starts over hurdles in smaller fields when he has raced too freely. He has run well on the AW this winter but connections switch him back to hurdles now his Flat handicap mark looks excessive. Hardrock Davis represents connections that do well here and are in good form.
