Verdict

An open-looking affair where few can be discounted out of hand, and perhaps POLO THE MUMM can take advantage of the change back to hurdles. Unconvincing over fences (0/10), Jackie Du Plessis' representative hasn't actually run too badly in two starts over the larger obstacles this year but is clearly best suited by hurdles and looks potentially well-handicapped on the basis of her form from last year. The Kid is on a career-high mark but should also be on the premises, while Bambi Du Noyer is better than he showed at Uttoxeter last time out.
  1. Polo The Mumm
