Verdict

The obvious solution to this opening handicap looks to be with the rejuvenated last time out Stratford winner Petrucci who overcame a long absence to land a well-directed gamble last time. Penalised 7lb he could deliver a similar blow but this is a quick return after a long absence and the safer option may be to support MUSICAL STARDUST each-way back over a C&D that suits her off a mark that is still workable. Magen’s Moon hasn’t shown much over hurdles so far but lurks on a dangerous mark while connections could well be expecting more than we have seen so far over hurdles from Raving Bonkers with Richard Johnson booked.
