Verdict

Touch Base is a fascinating contender on handicap hurdle debut but ROI DE DUBAI is preferred. The lightly raced contender ran well last time out and with more progress to come, he may be able to improve past his rivals here. Running In Heels will enjoy conditions and she may prove best of the remainder.
