Verdict

A weak event and very unlikely the course record will be under threat given that half the field are likely to be better suited to a stronger test of stamina. This may help WEEKEND OFFENDER utilise his speed form the Flat and help the gelding get off the mark at the first time of asking in a handicap hurdle. Hero's Welcome had the pick of a few entries this week, so may be one to bear in mind if supported, while British Art is being kept busy and is also worth a betting check. Support for Shabra's Bertolini to make the frame could also be significant.
  1. Weekend Offender
  2. Hero's Welcome
  3. British Art
