Verdict

Not a strong event although it does contain a trio that are very well handicapped on their old form in Jackthejourneyman, Gores Island and Helium and if any of those return to their old form they could win this very easily although there are doubts about all three. BURRENBRIDGE HOTEL despite a slight question mark about the ground looks to be the improving one here and he could well build on his last time out win off just a 6lb higher mark. Yourholidayisover always comes into the equation in races such as this but his finishing effort leaves a lot to be desired and he’s more likely to finish second than win this given how many times he’s thrown away victory chances.
  1. Burrenbridge Hotel
  2. Yourholidayisover
  3. Helium
