Verdict

Fred Winter Hurdle runner-up Edeymi has had three runs on the Flat and finished second in them all. He hasn't been in the best of form over timber but this isn't the toughest of races. Manuka was a bit disappointing over the C&D last week though he didn't get the clearest of runs and should be in the shake-up while Zip Wire benefited from the step-up in trip when runner-up to Miss Forde in November. SOMEWHERE makes a belated racecourse debut and she needn't be a world-beater to make a successful start. She's by Dalakhani out of a mare from a high-class family of middle-distance performers and is given the vote.
