Verdict

Jessica Harrington's English Pale is the pick of those with hurdling experience. His form is only ordinary and he could be vulnerable to one of the newcomers. Gordon Elliot's Vanishing Point has form on soft ground so it is possible he has had setbacks leading to his belated debut. The Graduate was an expensive purchase at the Newmarket sales in October. He is one to note in the market but LOOK CLOSER may be the answer to a tricky opener. He produced his best effort over hurdles last time and ought to improve again for the faster ground on offer here.
  1. Look Closer
  2. English Pale
  3. Vanishing Point
