Verdict

A challenging puzzle to solve, and it's difficult to definitively rule out all that many of the runners in a very open looking handicap hurdle. Shoofly Milly and Waterloo Warrior are closely matched on C&D form from March, but the suspicion is that others hold more pressing claims. Midnight Glory could have more to offer on just her second start in a handicap for the much respected Hobbs and Johnson partnership, whilst recent winner Maguire's Glen faces a much more challenging assignment after a 10lb hike in the weights for his Newton Abbot romp. A similar statement could be made about the selection DREAMSOFTHEATRE, who at first glance is up 9lb for his recent Huntingdon success. However, he has proved he can win from this kind of mark in the past (2013) and clearly much happier back over the smaller obstacles, he remains feasibly handicapped on that evidence.
