Verdict

He's been off since October but this looks a ready-made opportunity for OFFICER HOOLIHAN to notch his second C&D success having scored here last May in ready fashion. His latest effort at Uttoxeter was fair and he should take the beating in this. Skipthescales did as well as could have been expected behind an easy winner here recently and might well be booked for a similar supporting role now while Dolly's Dot and Strike Fear might be the best of a fairly ordinary lot thereafter.
