Verdict

A fascinating Grade 2 novices' hurdle. The sky is the limit for Olly Murphy's facile Carlisle scorer Overthetop who defends a proud unbeaten record (3-3). House Island took his chance (odds-on favourite Enrilo flopped on soft ground) in a less competitive race at Ludlow, while both Up The Straight (Lingfield) and Emmas Joy (Warwick) simply can't be knocked. However, after taking everything into consideration, the spotlight falls upon Kim Bailey's Happygolucky and Colin Tizzard's OFALLTHEGINJOINTS. The selection went down fighting under a penalty (Kempton) to Tuesday's Southwell winner Boss Man Fred, and that has the feel of rock-solid form.
