Verdict

A maximum field of low-grade hurdlers provides a tricky puzzle but JACK THE HAT looks the one to be on. He easily landed a similar handicap at Wexford a year ago and has been steadily coming back into form on fast ground. Lortzing was having only his sixth start over timber when an excellent second to Rodeo Rocket over the track and trip so with just a 3lb rise to contend with he looks a real threat. Lord Baltimore wasn't far behind in that latter event and is another with scope but Super Vic has done better on ground with some give, a remark that also applies to the well handicapped Riotman.
