Race Verdict

WESTLIN' WINDS disappointed on his chasing debut last time but he had previously run well in a handicap hurdle at Uttoxeter over 2m5f and he meets all of his rivals here on better terms than he would in a handicap, so he should take all the beating. Folk Tune has a fine record in sellers and claimers so he can be expected to give a good account. Hodgson is unexposed and he can make his presence felt providing he copes with the drop to 2m.

Selection: Westlin' Winds        Danger: Folk Tune        Alternative: Hodgson
