Verdict

MELODY OF SCOTLAND should appreciate the return to a sound surface and he can register a third win in his last four starts by taking this competitive looking handicap hurdle under top weight. Gateway To Europe has been performing well in defeat in recent times and he can finish runner-up ahead of King Cool who has placed on his three most recent starts.
  1. Melody Of Scotland
  2. Gateway To Europe
  3. King Cool
