Verdict

This is a shocker and the betting may prove a good guide though PALACE OF WINDS has comfortably the best form and John Oxx will want to put a nightmare 2013 behind him and start the year with a winner. Hilary has now had 22 starts without reaching the first two but her overall form makes her the main threat while Mick Halford's Bosstime could prove the pick of the newcomers.
