Verdict

On all known form this appears a match between FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHT and Show On The Road. The latter came out on top in their recent meeting at Taunton but there was only 2¼L between the pair and David Pipe's runner was making his hurdles debut that day whilst the Hobbs horse had the benefit of two previous runs over timber. The pair are clearly closely matched but preference is for the Pipe horse. Form elsewhere is sketchy at best so hurdles debutant Another Crick gets the vote for third.
  1. Friday Night Light
  2. Show On The Road
  3. Another Crick
