Verdict

A decent handicap hurdle with those in the top half of the weights likely to dominate. The race revolves around the unbeaten TEA CLIPPER. He has improved with each start and his opening mark of 127 may underestimate his ability whilst his entry in a Grade 3 at Ascot later this in notable. With Harry Skelton now back in the saddle and a return to more positive tactics, Ferrobin is highly respected having ran well here before whilst Magic Dancer is a consistent individual and can make the frame for a yard who are now in better form.
