Verdict

Barlow may well go off a short price here as he's been showing up well in handicaps this season and gets 7lb from EL DANCER. But we're going to stick with the Lucy Wadham runner as the nine-year-old is no slouch himself and likes the tight turns at Fakenham. He showed plenty of fight to beat hot favourite Private Equity at Leicester last week. Flichity and Monroe Park are little better than platers but Deciding Moment has shown promise in novice hurdles and bumpers and could be interesting on his chasing bow.
