Verdict

MILKWOOD's County Hurdle third can be marked up given his position on the day and the fact he lost a shoe, and it looks even better still now given the winner Belfast Banter's exploits at Aintree. He can land this good prize if in the same form after just a 2 lb rise. Improving-novices Calico and Tommy's Oscar figure high among the dangers.
