Verdict

In many respects, at first glance this is a typically competitive and open looking staying handicap hurdle with the likes of Le Musee, Django Django, Goodbye Dancer, Silva Eclipse and Flashjack among the list of possible winners. However, the presence of the Lucinda Russell-trained novice HIGHLAND HUNTER adds a whole new dimension to the race. He is one of the most promising young hurdlers in the northern region and could be in lightly on handicap debut off an opening mark of 128. Furthermore, he encounters a staying trip (3m) for the first time, which is highly likely to generate further improvement.
  1. Highland Hunter
  2. Django Django
  3. Le Musee
