Verdict

ZUBAYR is a Grade 2 winner who clearly loves a flat track and could be the one to side with here having travelled best in the race at Kempton and with a more prominent ride, may be seen to best effect. Jester Jet came good at this time of year last time and may be able to build on a promising run in Listed company from last time while Ivanovich Gorbotov is obviously well-handicapped on his Grade 1 Triumph Hurdle form. If first time headgear has the desired effect he's an obvious danger to all.
  1. Zubayr
