Verdict

This is a very modest contest and a chance is taken that Tim Easterby's handicap debutant PRONTO TONTO can show improved form having not really been sighted in three fair novice hurdles so far. Drums of War has claims on his second place at Musselburgh but ran badly in heavy ground last time so is hard to predict. Handy Hollow and Strike West have bits and pieces of form that stack up in this company, and the mare Simply Business is not totally out of it off a light weight.
