Verdict

PLAY THE GAME looks the pick on form and he can take this large field maiden hurdle. This looks a weaker event than the two maiden hurdles he's contested of late and he can get off the mark here with Sometimes A Fox, a disappointment when pulling up here on his hurdling debut but placed twice on the Flat capable of finishing second. Of the remainder the unraced El Rouli represents a good yard and can claim third on his racecourse debut.
