Verdict
FATHER JED has been in good form in recent starts and he can follow-up his victory last time out with success in this competitive handicap hurdle. The selection can get the better of his rivals here with Wee Small Hours, second on his most recent start capable of filling the same position in this contest while third place can go to Load Up Time who should appreciate this drop back in distance and remains open to improvement.
  1. Father Jed
  2. Wee Small Hours
