Verdict

HIGHWAY ONE O ONE has made a very good start to his career under rules and can gain a second win over hurdles here. He has a penalty to shoulder but is some way clear of the majority of these on form. Chief danger is undoubtedly Jersey Bean, a bumper winner who ran well enough in his first start over hurdles when third at Wetherby. Fenions Court looks capable of getting involved too.
  1. Highway One O One
  2. Jersey Bean
  3. Fenlons Court
