Verdict

With respect a thick black line can be safely inked through at least half of the field, with the remainder not at all alluring with regards the future either. However, there will be a winner and that could be Bolister assuming that his recent fair comeback run at Fontwell (2m1f+) can be built upon now dropped back in trip. Having said that and with the strong feeling that the handicapper has erred on the side of caution with an opening mark of 99, we'll chance the top-weight RAFFERTY. He hasn't been seeing out his races in novice company (at 2m) but is bred for a hurdling career (dam was a 2m3f winner) and he couldn't have found a weaker race for his handicap debut.
  1. Rafferty
  2. Bolister
  3. Maroc
