Verdict

Holly Bush Henry often gives the impression that he's more suited to jumping hurdles and again was a bit sketchy at times recently at Kempton. Popelys Gull won on debut over fences at Wetherby and again showed up well last time at this track. He should be suited by this extra yardage and is respected but a chance is given to HALO MOON who has an excellent record at Fakenham. He has two wins from three starts at the track and was brought down when going well on his other visit. His effort at Bangor in November off a long absence was perfectly decent and Neil Mulholland has allowed him plenty time to get over that. More Than Luck has been in good form over fences/hurdles lately but has a career-high mark to overcome.
  1. Halo Moon
  2. Popelys Gull
  3. More Than Luck
