Verdict

This doesn't look the deepest novices' handicap hurdle of all time and the answer may well be SCOTSBROOK NIGHT, who has been progressing nicely recently for Shaun Lycett, including when second at Southwell last time out, and off the same mark can take another forward step here to be the one to be with. In a race where it may pay to look towards the bottom of the weights, Sprogzilla and Poet's Charm are others for the shortlist.
  1. Scotsbrook Night
  2. Sprogzilla
  3. Poet's Charm
