Kid Commando (11/4), Scaramanga (10/3), Malaya (5/1), Sebastopol (6/1), Hang In There (13/2), Caius Marcius (15/2), Countister (15/2), Teqany (10/1), Dear Sire (12/1), Byron Flyer (18/1)

Verdict

None of these can be safely discounted. It may be worth siding with COUNTISTER, who failed to fire in a couple of Grade 3 handicaps last season but is just 2 lb above the mark off which she was third in the 2019 County Hurdle. The unexposed Kid Commando is next best ahead of Malaya, who signed off last season with a decent effort here, while Sebastopol is also firmly in calculations.
