Verdict

MARLBOROUGH SOUNDS showed decent handicap form on the Flat and having taken well to hurdles he can make a winning handicap debut by taking the opening race on the card. The selection impressed when winning on handicap debut last time out and he can see off Palmers Hill who has won first time out in the past and is making his seasonal debut. Third place can go the way of Earth Moor who completed a hat-trick when winning his penultimate start and showed good form when placed last time.
  1. Marlborough Sounds
  2. Palmers Hill
  3. Earth Moor
