Verdict

Few of those to have raced over hurdles have achieved anything to merit consideration. Lady Mix may improve for the switch to a softer surface, whilst useful Flat handicapper Subcontinent will be better suited to this shorter trip than the 2m3f he raced over on his hurdling debut. He enters calculations with his yard in form. Holdbacktheriver was easy to back on his hurdling debut but his yard have done well in this race previously. MARLEY FIRTH was the winner of a good point-to-point and is not too highly tried on his hurdling bow for an in form yard. Doctor Haze is another winning pointer and has to considered with his yard doing so well of late. Hardness raced a modest level on the Flat but is with a yard that do well with it's cross Channel imports and the market will tell us more.
