Verdict

With the ground likely to be riding plenty quick enough, this race provides a very low-key start to the National Hunt season at Musselburgh. No single horse in the line up can be approached with any degree of confidence, so the safest approach is to stick with the veteran ANDHAAR. This five-time winner finished in front of a couple of today's rivals (Son Of Feyan and Gentleman James) when out-performing his 40/1 odds at Ayr last week.
  1. Andhaar
  2. Urban Kode
  3. The Resdev Way
