Verdict

A poor race with many longstanding hurdle maidens declared. However, Christmas in Usa deserves to find a winning opportunity and evidently has ability lurking within. Hopefully a summer wind operation can unlock the required improvement, albeit his handler Nick Alexander has had precious few runners so far this season. Therefore, the best advice is to stick towards the top-end of the weights and the shout goes up for the Irish raider HITCHCOCK. His stamina reserves are a concern but he faces very limited opposition and is a notable first runner in England away from Cheltenham for the County Wexford handler Barry John Murphy. A repeat of his recent Wexford form should suffice.
  1. Hitchcock
